Hutchgo.com, the Asian online travel agency, has moved to expand and improve its operations by signing a major new technology agreement with Travelport.
The deal will see Travelport become the Hong Kong-based OTA’s main technology partner in multiple markets, including Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and the UK.
This expands on an existing agreement signed in 2015 between Travelport and Hutchison Travel, Hutchgo.com’s parent company, covering Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.
Under this expanded agreement, Travelport will power the OTA’s online reservations, giving customers the ability to search for and book the latest travel content, airfares and ancillaries.
“Travelport has proven to be a highly valued technology partner for Hutchgo.com since our partnership in 2015. We are pleased to broaden the scope of our agreement covering our expansion into key regions in Asia and into the UK, and look forward to providing our customers with the best-in-class booking experience powered by Travelport’s leading technology,” said Tony Ma, CEO of Hutchgo.com.
Formerly known as Hutchison-Priceline, Hutchgo.com was Hong Kong’s first full-service OTA, and has since expanded its operations to eight countries.
