Travelport, a leading Travel Commerce Platform has announced the extension of its partnership with Kiwi.com, a rapidly growing Czech- based online travel agency (OTA). Kiwi.com began operations in 2012, and has become one of the most promising European online airline ticket retailers. Developing a unique search algorithm, Kiwi.com combines flights from various carriers -competitors or not- to create bespoke travel offers.
Kiwi.com’s personalised, multi-carrier itineraries demand huge volumes of search and data processing. Travelport’s universal API has been key to simplifying their distribution, resulting in significant cost reduction. With eStreaming API, Kiwi.com’s agents can obtain and analyze content quicker than ever.
Oliver Dlouhý, CEO, Kiwi.com commented: “The continuation of our agreement with Travelport marks how impactful Travelport’s industry-leading technology has been for our business over the last year. Their great merchandizing capabilities will continue to reinforce our business operations and support our constantly growing presence in Europe and overseas.”
