UK travel agents can now book pre-paid seating on British Airways' flights for the first time through the Travelport GDS.
Before, agents could only do this through the airlineâ€™s website.
The development comes after BA and Travelport signed a full content agreement, which included a commitment to integrate BAâ€™s pre-paid seating solution into the GDS.
To take advantage of the facility, agents must download Travelport Options Integrator, which is available for connected agents free of charge.
Travelport and BA intend to implement the new functionality to other key regions later in the year following the initial home market launch this month.

Recently, roomsXML has launched its new version of API, which brings significant upgrades to its already reliable API. By upgrading the API, clients now have the ability to search for multiple hotels of their choice in a single request. This allows them complete freedom to only search for hotels they wish to sell.
