Travelport has signed a new content agreement with Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express Airways.

Effective immediately, the agreement provides Travelport-connected agents worldwide with access to the fares of both airlines. The two carriers have also selected Travelport as their preferred GDS in Hong Kong, meaning agents will receive exclusive promotions.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome both Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express Airways as Travelport’s newest airline partners. These agreements are testament to our commitment to delivering unrivalled travel content to our global travel agency customers, whilst helping to grow bookings on both airlines via Travelport’s GDS platforms,” said Damian Hickey, Travelport’s vice president of global distribution sales & services in Asia Pacific.

Part of the HNA Group, Hong Kong Airlines operates scheduled passenger services to 10 destinations in China and Vietnam, while Hong Kong Express Airways offers services to nine destinations in China, Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand.

“We look forward to working with Travelport to deliver our service offering to more travel agents worldwide and to continue to grow our business in the Asia Pacific,” said Jiang Yu Tao, deputy director of Hong Kong Express and Hong Kong Airlines.

Travelport operates the Galileo, Apollo and Worldspan GDS systems.
