Travelport introduces next-gen APIs


Travelport has introduced new updated RESTful / JSON APIs to provide next-generation retailing and exchange capabilities to travel retailers globally.

As part of its ongoing investment in next-gen platform, Travelport+, the new APIs are being rolled out globally and will offer retailers a gateway for the tools to tailor their retailing experience, and greatly improve efficiency.

"With our new APIs, we've expanded our modern retailing toolkit so that agencies upgrading to Travelport+ can more easily personalise the retailing experience," said Greg Webb, Chief Executive Officer at Travelport.

"The improvements we've made with these enhanced APIs will give travel retailers around the world simplified access to dynamic retail-ready content, from multiple sources, across all of their points of sale."

Travelport says they drive up to 68% faster average transactions and a faster shopping and booking experience for travelers.

They can also be used in conjunction with Travelport's SOAP / XML APIs.

They include all of the details needed for public, private and tour operator specific air content and can be deeply enriched with Travelport's branded fares

Travelport is further simplifying access to multi-sourced content, like NDC, with integrated search capabilities.

The new and enhanced APIs, coupled with the latest NDC enhancements from this month's launch of Smartpoint 10, provides exclusive NDC fare accessibility across all agent workflows.

Travelport currently has NDC connections underway with 10 major airlines and has enabled a wide range of agencies and their customers - including OTAs, TMCs, consolidators and leisure agencies - to successfully book NDC flights.
