Ethiopian Airlines, the largest carrier in Africa, and Travelport, a global technology company that powers bookings for hundreds of thousands of travel suppliers worldwide, have announced a new agreement. The renewed deal includes distribution on the Travelport+ platform and expands the ongoing travel retailing and distribution relationship between Travelport and Ethiopian Airlines.
Once the airline makes content via NDC distribution available, both companies will work together to provide agents with access to NDC content and functionality from Ethiopian Airlines in the Travelport+ platform. As part of the agreement, Ethiopian Airlines will become a new participant in Travelport’s Rich Content & Branding (RC&B) programme. As a top 100 carrier booked through Travelport, the carrier is laying the foundation to ensure that Travelport-connected agencies can access the most robust, enriched Ethiopian Airlines’ content following its current fleet expansion.
