Al Fanar Travel upgrades agreement with Travelport

Travelport has announced that it has signed an upgraded multi-year agreement with Al Fanar Travel, one of the top agencies in Bahrain and also a unit of the Jawad Business Group.

This new win builds on the momentum of recent months where Travelport has won over a string of new agency partners, growing its network in the Middle East. The agreement also means Travelport will process the vast majority of Al Fanar Travel’s bookings.

The shift to Travelport is motivated by a positive service experience, extensiveness of content, better fare comparisons as well as value-added proprietary features such as Best Buy Plus and Rapid Reprice.
