Travelport has expanded its partnership with Hopper, creator of the mobile flight booking app.
The Hopper app, which is available for iOS and Android, uses big data to find, analyse and predict air fares, and then advises travellers on whether to book immediately or wait for cheaper flights.
Under the new agreement, Hopper will leverage Travelport’s Universal API and shopping data products to improve the accuracy of its traveller recommendations.
“Travelport’s innovative technology, along with our leading data-driven research and analytics, is helping travellers make better decisions and save money on their flight bookings,” said Frederic Lalonde, Hopper’s founder & CEO.
Chris Zando, Travelport’s vice president of partnerships & alliances, added; “Our work with Hopper is a great example of Travelport’s commitment to engage with early stage companies who recognise the value that our industry-leading technology gives them to boost their success and future growth.”
Hopper first launched in early 2015 and has since won several awards.
