LANGLEY, UK, 3 December 2021: Travelport that powers travel
bookings worldwide has concluded a distribution agreement Thursday with the
International Airlines Group (IAG), one of the world’s largest airline groups.

It will enable the latest travel retailing technology to
deliver “New Distribution Capability (NDC)” content from Aer Lingus, British
Airways, Iberia, and Vueling to Travelport-connected travel agencies worldwide.

By channelling its NDC content through the next-generation
Travelport+ platform, IAG will be able to offer travel retailers a wider range
of content – including Additional Price Points and an expanded selection of
ancillary products – while taking advantage of modern digital retailing tools
such as intelligent storefronts to merchandize them effectively.

British Airways head of distribution and payments Katy
Cardwell said: “This supports our vision of moving towards a more innovative
way of travel retailing, giving Travelport subscribers access to a greater
choice of new and better products and services, including Additional Price
Points and ancillaries, which are only available via NDC and add significant
value.”

Travelport vice president global enterprise, air partners
Chris Ramm said: “Unlocking the potential of sophisticated multi-source content
like NDC, by making it easier for the trade to access and sell, is a key part
of our plans for Travelport+. We are hugely excited to be working alongside a
partner like IAG, which shares our vision for modern travel retailing.”
