Major airlines currently or soon offering access to their branded fares through Rich Content and Branding include Delta, Air France/KLM, British Airways, Iberia, Lufthansa, China Southern Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Avianca.

In addition, an increasing number of airlines such as Etihad Airways and Jetstar are introducing no-bag fares on long-haul routes, a development fully supported by Travelport’s Rich Content and Branding tool.

Agencies have have been taking advantage of this tool. Mustafa Filizkok, managing director of online agency Fly365, commented, “Branded fares and ancillaries has increased all of our sales across the board. The results that we are seeing from this particular product is that we have managed to be able to upsell which gives us a great revenue stream.”
