“This agreement is an important part of our distribution activity across Europe and the Middle East and Rich Content and Branding will provide us with a powerful advantage as we widen out the Cobalt Air offering in an aim to bring the world to Cyprus.”

Travelport EMEA air commerce vice president Philip Saunders added: “We are delighted to welcome Cobalt Air to Travelport’s platform and look forward to supporting its growth objectives.
