Australia- and New Zealand-based OTA Webjet has announced the extension of its technology partnership with Travelport for a longer term.
Under the agreement, Webjet will participate in initiatives driven by Travelport involving IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) standard.
Travelport was the first GDS operator to manage live bookings using the new standard in October 2018.
By extending its partnership with Travelport, Webjet will also continue to have real-time access to a broad range of content from over 400 airlines, hundreds of thousands of hotels, and 37,000 car rental locations on a single platform.
Webjet will soon deploy Travelport Trip Services, allowing it to utilise the industry’s latest APIs to perform a faster and more accurate mobile-optimised search across the full range of Travelport content.
