A “breakthrough” full content agreement has been forged by Travelport with Pakistan International Airlines.
The multi-year deal covers agents using Galileo and Worldspan subscribers across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
It ensures that users of the GDSs in the region have access to the airline’s full range of published fares, web fares and inventory.
Travelport UK and Ireland regional director Simon Ferguson said: “This is an incredibly important agreement for our travel agency customers in the UK.
“PIA is a strategic airline that boasts a far-reaching network and strong loyalty amongst the Pakistani expatriate community, and as such is highly valued by travel agencies in this region.”
PIA corporate services director Mamoon Rashid said the agreement was fulfilling a long standing demand from the travel industry.
“Our accessibility will be significantly enhanced,” he said. “Our new relationship with Travelport provides us with the opportunity to grow our business and Travelport’s reach and depth of coverage will make it easier for travel agents to access PIA.”
