Extract :

Ryanair has announced plans to sell through a global distribution system (GDS), by partnering with the e-commerce travel provider Travelport GDS to make its fares available through its network starting next week.

The deal means Ryanair flights will now be available for booking via third party agents .

Travelport, which has a presence in 170 countries, is comprised of a global distribution system business, that includes the Galileo and Worldspan brands, its Airline IT Solutions business and a majority joint venture ownership in eNett.

Ryanair chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said approximately 22 per cent of its customer base are business travellers, equivalent to about 19 million passengers. However, he said the airline is seeking to double the number of business passengers within two years, through initiatives such as the agreement with Travelport.
