ITQ to conduct road shows on booking IndiGo (6E) through Travelport

IndiGo, India’s largest domestic airline and one of the world’s fastest growing low cost carriers, and Travelport, a leading Travel Commerce Platform, have partnered to distribute IndiGo’s fares and ancillary products to Travelport-connected customers worldwide. This is the first time that IndiGo has struck a deal with a global GDS by choosing Travelport as its distribution partner, reflects the value the airline sees in Travelport’s travel commerce offerings. The platform offers fully integrated, industry leading merchandising capabilities and is used extensively by travel agencies in India as well as other key target markets for IndiGo. This distribution capability enables the airline to provide its content via an API connection, rather than the more traditional fare filing methods often favoured by network carriers, and still have their fares and ancillaries displayed, compared and booked in exactly the same way.

InterGlobe Technology Quotient (ITQ) is conducting a series of road shows in various cities across India to infuse this idea of ease-of-booking on Travelport GDS. The Road shows are meant to inform and update the travel agents community on the feasibility of booking India’s largest LCC, where, they can now search and access full information including visuals on the airline’s branded fares and ancillaries, empowering them to sell more effectively to their customers and increase revenues.

Sandeep Dwivedi, Chief Commercial Officer of ITQ commented that, “With the integration of 6E’s branded fares including corporate, sale, family return – together with popular ancillaries such as seats, excess baggage, meals, lounge access and many more –we are offering our customers a world of travel choice with Travelport. Populating the idea of such a technological ease and adoption of the same by travel agencies across the country, is the idea behind launching these road show marathon and we are confident that our travel partners would be delighted to learn more about booking IndiGo on Travelport.”
