Travelport has renewed its partnership with Sharp Aviation K for the continued distribution of the Worldspan platform in South Korea.
Seoul-based Sharp Aviation K has operated Worldspan Korea since 1998, providing reservation and ticketing support to travel agents. Worldspan Korea supplies Travelport’s technology solutions, including its travel agency desktop solution, Smartpoint, to the Korean market.
“We have built an invaluable relationship with Sharp Aviation K and we are delighted to extend this long-term partnership with Worldspan Korea,” said Martin Herbert, Travelport’s managing director for Asia.
“This agreement is testament to Travelport’s combination of innovative technology and extensive travel content, together with Worldspan Korea’s market familiarity. Together, we can effectively support customers to achieve commercial success.”
Asia Pacific is Travelport’s fastest-growing region globally, with 18% growth in the year to 31 March 2017. And Korea is one of the fastest-growing outbound travel markets in Asia Pacific, with approximately 22 million Koreans (almost half of the country’s population) travelling abroad in 2016.
“We have a great partnership with Travelport and we look forward to continue working with the leading travel commerce platform. The renewal of our deal will further support our growth in one of the fastest growing Asian markets,” said Soon Suk Paik, owner of Worldspan Korea.
