Travelport renews operational agreement in Azerbaijan and Georgia

Travelport today announced it has renewed its distributor agreement in Azerbaijan and Georgia with Galileo Caucasus LLC. Effective immediately, the multi-year deal cements the longstanding relationship between the two companies and builds on Travelport’s strategy of driving a strong presence in Eastern Europe.

Galileo Caucasus LLC has been distributing Travelport’s content, products and services in both countries since 2010. Throughout this time, the company has been led by Emil Bayramov and the relationship provides a well-founded bridge between Travelport’s leadership team and local travel customers.

The announcement follows the recent full content agreement with Azerbaijan Airlines, the national carrier of Azerbaijan, which provides all Travelport-connected agencies with access to all of the airline’s content. For the first time, the full content agreement also included Azerbaijan-based travel agencies who can now book tickets more efficiently, as part of their existing workflow.

Marcin Pilarski, Managing Director Eastern Europe at Travelport commented: “Maintaining a strong position with our partners and focusing on direct and localised support in the Caucasus is a crucial part of our strategy for Travelport in Eastern Europe. We are pleased to continue our mutually beneficial relationship with Galileo Caucasus LLC which has built a solid foundation in both Azerbaijan and Georgia. We are also pleased that our presence in Azerbaijan has been further strengthened by signing a full content agreement with the national carrier in Azerbaijan at the end of last year. This recent deal should significantly improve the effective delivery of our products and services to travel agencies and to grow our business in the countries.”

Emil Bayramov, General Manager of Galileo Caucasus LLC added: “Our successful partnership with Travelport has significantly improved the development of our tourism industry. Travelport’s innovative technology and merchandising capabilities help travel agents to differentiate themselves from their competitors and enables them to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction by offering the greatest choice possible. The renewal of our agreement gives us the possibility to continue further developments and deliver excellent solutions to our diverse range of customers in both countries.”
