Under the new agreement, Travelport will continue to support the Saudi-based airline by providing more than 68,000 Travelport-connected agencies with real-time access to search, sell and book the airline’s content and inventory.

By continuing to work with Travelport’s global network, we will provide our loyal customers with greater access to our flights and open up significant new growth opportunities for our business.”
