Travelport, has extended its private channel agreement with Air France KLM.

The deal will ensure the company’s agency partners, selected by Air France KLM, are able to continue to avoid the surcharges that are levied on flight bookings with the Group through global distribution systems.

Chris Ramm, Vice President, Enterprise Air Partners at Travelport said: “To support Air France KLM’s transition, as an interim measure, we have extended our private channel agreement with the group to give the travel ecosystem more time to develop NDC technical capabilities and to connect the airlines’ NDC content to our platform.”
