European low-cost carrier transavia.com has signed up to use Travelport’s Merchandising Platform.
The agreement means travel agents using Travelport’s GDS will be able to see the carrier’s information in the same booking flow as traditional carriers and allows for ancillary bookings such as pre-booked baggage.
“Signing up for Travelport’s aggregated shopping technology is an important step for us and I’m confident it will enable us to achieve our European growth ambitions. Quite simply, it makes booking our low fares much easier for travel agents as they’ll be displayed alongside more traditional air content,” said the airline’s chief commercial officer Roy Scheerder.
Jet2.com and Norwegian are also using the Aggregated Shopping tool.
Transavia is a new low-cost airline based in the Netherlands and France.
