Trainline, an online rail and coach ticket provider, has entered a multi-year partnership with Travelport.
Trainline’s enormous collection of aggregated content from major European rail operators will be incorporated into Travelport+ via the Smartpoint desktop user interface as part of the deal.
The new partnership comes as global rail options become a more popular means of transportation for both pleasure and business travellers across Europe.
Travelport’s chief commercial officer, travel partners, Jason Clarke, stated, “Our collaboration with Trainline Partner Solutions builds upon a common objective of being game changers in the travel industry by providing customers with trusted and agile solutions that remove complexity and enhance the overall travel experience.”
He continued, “Our Travelport+ capability will rapidly integrate Trainline’s technology platform leading to improved retailing capabilities for our global network of travel agents and the most compelling range of European rail content for travellers today.”
Global agents connected to Travelport’s next-generation platform, Travelport+, will soon be able to manage and book cross-European rail packages as easily as they do airline and hotel content, as demand for environmentally friendly means of transportation develops.
Trainline Partner Solutions’ president, Champa Magesh, stated: “We are pleased to reach this monumental milestone with Travelport.
“Making our rail content accessible across the Travelport platform will further enhance our global reach and enable our unique offering to be searched and booked in conjunction with relevant air and hotel content, encouraging greener journeys.
She added thatTravelport’s technology complements the industry-leading technology offering, and that the company looks forward to collaborating to provide extraordinary travel experiences.
