Travelport has continued to expand its footprint across Africa with the launch of business operations in Somalia. The company has appointed Euro Africa Services as its distributor in the country. Travelport is now present in 48 African countries, with more in the pipeline.
Under the terms of the new agreement, Euro Africa Services will have exclusive rights to distribute Travelport’s Galileo technology and services in Somalia, providing travel agencies in the region with access to extensive global travel content, technology as well as customer support and training.
“The new operations in Somalia form a key part of our continuing Africa expansion strategy,” said Mark Meehan, managing director for Travelport Africa. “Somalia has a major growth potential and we feel that this is the right time to make a significant investment in this region.”
