Travelport has signed a new multi-year global content agreement with Swiss International Air Lines. As part of the agreement, all GDS surcharges will continue to be waived for Travelport-connected travel agencies who choose to participate in the Swiss Preferred Fares programmes that operate in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Outside of these countries Galileo and Worldspan-connected agencies will also continue to have access to all of the Swiss published fares and inventory.
Oliver Barthelmeh, Head of Revenue Management, Pricing & Distribution at Swiss, said: “We very much value our continuing partnership with Travelport who offer a major distribution channel for the sale of Swiss fares through their Galileo, Apollo and Worldspan GDSs. Travelport offers a highly efficient means of booking all Swiss flights and fares for travel agencies worldwide.”
