American and Travelport make friends again


American Airlines and Travelport have resolved their long-running dispute over content.

They have issued a joint announcement confirming that their full content agreements have been extended but did not disclose further details.

The move brings to an end industry-wide concern about the future of the global distribution system model.

The two parties had threatened to take lawsuits against each other for anti-competitive behaviour following American’s decision to terminate an agreement with online travel Orbitz, part-owned by Travelport.

Instead, American was hoping to drive bookings through its on online booking system, Direct Connect.

American had also had a similar dispute with GDS Sabre, but following the truce with Travelport it is expected that it will also be able to reach an agreement with Sabre.
