Travelport announced the launch of an enhanced version of Travelport Agencia in Canada today.
An advanced, web-based application, Travelport Agencia is the only travel agency desktop tool that allows agents to shop, book and modify Air Canada’s full content and travel options along with global airline content from the Apollo GDS.
The new release offers many new capabilities, including automatic PNR creation with enhanced finishing in the Apollo system, the ability to do multi-city PNRs, modify bookings and offers full parity with Air Canada’s fares and ancillary services.
The Agencia app offers a full range of options for booking domestic and international fares, including Tango, Tango Plus, Latitude, Executive Class fares, Corporate fares and Private fares as well as Flight Passes much more. The app also means there’s no need for agents to move between different systems to secure the best flight options for customers while it also supports the agency’s Air Canada commission, discount and payment agreements.
“Travelport’s collaboration with Air Canada and the investment we’ve made in delivering Agencia, a tool that enables Canadian agents to book all Air Canada content in an efficient and streamlined manner, demonstrates our ability to develop next generation distribution and shopping solutions that are capable of merchandising an airlines’ full line of products and optional services. Integration of Air Canada’s content into a single screen is an industry first and allows Canadian agents to offer the traveller fully informed travel choice,” said Travelport’s President – The Americas, Derek Sharp.
“This agreement is completely consistent with the way Travelport is looking to partner with all airlines on merchandising, optional ancillary sales and product differentiation. We have the capability to achieve full content for all subscribers, merchandizing Air Canada’s full line of products and services through APIs and there is no bypass of either the GDS or of our travel agency partners,” added Sharp.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Travelport to bring an enhanced booking tool to our mutual travel agency customers. All of Air Canada’s product features, fares and a la carte options are now seamlessly and efficiently accessible through Travelport Agencia,” said Air Canada’s Senior Director Graham Wareham.
