Full Content Agreement Extended For Two Years

Travelport, the business services provider to the global travel industry, has signed a two year extension of their current full content agreement with United Airlines, designed to provide full content well into 2013.

Through the extension of the agreement, all United published fares and seat inventory, including Web fares available on its own site, reservation offices and through third parties, will be available to subscribers of Travelport’s Apollo, Galileo and Worldspan GDS systems, including all Travelport-connected offline travel agencies and online agencies booking through Travelport.

As part of the agreement, United says it is pleased to offer Travelport-connected travel agents the option of selling their passengers upgrades into United Airlines’ popular Economy Plus seating. Economy Plus seat upgrades will become available later this year through the Travelport travel agency point of sale tools, Apollo Focalpoint, Galileo Desktop and Worldspan GoRes. United’s Economy Plus seating provides more room to work or rest on a flight with up to five more inches of legroom and are located at the front of the economy cabin.

Recently Dave Walsh, currently with bmi in Dublin, was appointed new Travelport Ireland Manager. He takes over the post in October.
