Travelport Renews Technology Agreement with Norwegian

Travelport, a leading Travel Commerce Platform, has announced a new multiyear renewal agreement with airline Norwegian, the sixth largest low-cost carrier globally, offering flights to over 150 destinations in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Caribbean, the US and South America

Norwegian operates three codes, DY (Norwegian Air Shuttle), D8 (Norwegian Air International) and the new DI (Norwegian Air UK), operating new routes from Gatwick to Singapore and Buenos Aires.

Under this renewed agreement, Norwegian has also chosen to deploy Travelport’s Rich Content and Branding merchandising solution. Joining over 230 airlines to display their branded fares and ancillary content in a graphically rich and visual way in order to enable the upsell of ancillary products. For agencies, this means that, when shopping for and booking flights via Travelport’s Airline Merchandising capabilities, they have enhanced travel content and greater access to airline ancillary offers. This delivers  better revenue per seat for our airline customers and increased revenue for the agents.

Lars Sande, Senior Vice President Sales and Distribution at Norwegian, which launched two routes from Belfast to the US in the past summer, comments: “With passenger numbers currently exceeding 30 million per year, this renewed partnership offers great international market growth potential for us. Enabling us to provide a new breadth of content and expand our presence both in Europe and overseas.”

David Gomes, Commercial Director Air Commerce at Travelport added: “We are delighted Norwegian continues to recognise the value of our Travel Commerce Platform. Further strengthening our widest choice of graphically rich, visual content for distribution within an agency workflow and the outreach that we can provide to support such a key player in the European aviation industry.
