Joining approximately 170 airlines now live with Travelport’s merchandising solution (Rich Content and Branding), Emirates will benefit from Travelport’s ability to provide detailed product descriptions, including images and related ancillary options to travel agencies. 

Derek Sharp, senior vice president and managing director, Air Commerce, Travelport, commented: “We are delighted to build on our strong partnership with Emirates through this enhanced global full content agreement as well as the renewal of our long standing IT agreement.  Emirates’ choice to offer agents their branded fares content with detailed descriptions and imagery will enable agents to more effectively upsell Emirates’ services providing an improved service to travellers and hopefully boosting Emirates’ growth across the globe.”
