Travelport and WestJet have announced the signing of a new long-term content distribution deal.

The renewed partnership between the two will pave the way for WestJet to improve its retailing capabilities as both companies start to collaborate on the future delivery of New Distribution Capability (NDC) content and servicing.

“This is an exciting time for travel distribution and Travelport’s ability to help agencies operate as modern retailers aligns with the value proposition across our wide range of products,” said Jorge Rozo, vice-president of pricing, revenue and distribution at WestJet. “This new agreement ensures that together, WestJet and Travelport deliver a future modern retailing experience for our agency partners and travel customers so that they can easily search, shop and service our fares and ancillaries.”

The agreement confirms that Travelport’s agency customers will continue to have access to WestJet’s content, including ancillary services.

WestJet will also continue to use Rich Content and Branding (RC&B) services from Travelport, which helps agencies operate as modern retailers with the ability to easily view, compare and sell the carrier’s wide range of product offerings.

Travelport is focused on delivering retail-ready content to its agency customers, including access to NDC content from WestJet when it becomes available in the future.

The companies will work together to ensure agents have access to a wide range of offers and fares from WestJet along with full servicing capabilities.

“This agreement shows our commitment to deliver retail-ready content and more value to our agency customers in North America and the rest of the world,” said Bruce Hyatt, head of air partners – Americas at Travelport. “As WestJet looks to enrich its content distribution strategy, we will work closely with their team to ensure agents using Travelport+ can provide a seamless shopping and booking experience for their travelers when booking WestJet.”
