Travelport – the leading distribution services and e-commerce provider for the global travel industry – has announced the renewal of its long-term distribution agreement with Travel Technology Systems Co. in Kuwait.
The new multi-year agreement affirms that Travel Technology Systems Co. will remain Travelport’s distributor of Galileo technology, extensive content and services to travel agencies in the country, further cementing the successful partnership between the two companies.
“We have enjoyed a highly successful partnership with Travelport over several years and continue to see a strong future for Galileo in Kuwait,” commented Raj Krishnan, General Manager, Kuwait. “We now look forward to working closely with Travelport to take their business in Kuwait to the next stage through the winning combination of cutting edge technology, unrivalled content and customer support and a deep understanding of the local travel industry.”
The news comes shortly after Travelport announced the renewal of its exclusive global full content agreement with Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s low-cost airline, in late 2013 – adding real momentum to Travelport’s continued success in this key Middle East region. The deal ensured that content from Jazeera Airways continues to be made available exclusively to Travelport GDS users in Kuwait, with preferred access to the carrier’s best inventory and fares.
“We are delighted to continue our mutually-beneficial relationship with Travel Technology Systems Co. in Kuwait,” said Rabih Saab, President and Managing Director, Middle East and Africa, Travelport. “The new agreement with Jazeera Airways, coupled with the new distributor agreement in Kuwait, will ensure that the local travel industry continues to benefit from Travelport’s cutting edge solutions and the highest levels of customer care.”
