Travelport has signed a major new agreement with Australia’s Pinpoint Travel Group.
The Sydney-based company, which specialises in travel rewards and redemption programmes, as well as operating the Australian holiday programmes for several international airlines, will now use Travelport as its main GDS provider in the Asia region.
Travelport, which operates the Galileo, Apollo and Worldspan GDS, will also provide Pinpoint with travel technology consultancy services.
“When we were selecting a new GDS partner for Asia, we drew up a list of selection criteria which ranged from technology offered, global reach, industry expertise and commercial value. Travelport stood out amongst other potential solution providers,” explained Kirsty Rankin, CEO of Pinpoint Pty Ltd, the parent company of Pinpoint Travel Group.
“Travel rewards are now a critical component for all types of loyalty programmes,” said Gordon Wilson, president & CEO of Travelport. “It is important for Pinpoint Travel Group to have access to the broadest travel content possible via innovative technology, ensuring their clients’ members enjoy a seamless booking process.
“I am… confident that we can help them deliver on their business goals,” Wilson added.
In addition to operating SIA Holidays and United Vacations in the Australia region, Pinpoint also runs holiday brands such as Freestyle Holidays and Rosie Holidays.
