Travel technology firm Travelport and airline Cityjet have signed a distribution agreement.
The deal enables Travelport connected agencies, using Galileo and Worldspan, to book Cityjet fares and ancillaries.
“As a truly independent European airline, we believe we can reach new heights by tapping into the valuable travel agency distribution channel,” said CityJet CEO, Christine Ourmières.
“Travelport is one of the world’s leading distribution providers. We look forward to strengthening our relationship as well as taking advantage of its strong industry expertise and global reach.”
The airline, headquartered in Dublin, operates around 700 flights a week to several destinations across Europe.
Simon Ferguson, managing director UK and Ireland at Travelport said: “The successful implementation of Cityjet highlights our commitment to our travel agency customers.
“We look forward to working with our valued airline partner to maximize their exposure to travel agents and increase the accessibility of their fares.”
