Travelport has signed a new agreement with Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) to promote the multi-modal connectivity services at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) to travel buyers in Asia, Europe and North America.
The digital media solutions provided by Travelport will help HKIA offer a hassle-free experience to passengers traveling into China. The technology allows overseas travel buyers – such as travel agencies and travel management companies – to pre-book the airport’s multi-modal transport services for their customers in 18 markets from across the world. The new digital solutions will also allow HKIA to embrace new business opportunities by targeting nearby airport destinations and promoting its multi-modal, multi-stop connecting services.
Commenting on the agreement, Steven Yiu, Deputy Director, Service Delivery, AA said: “Travelport facilitates the engagement of the global agency community and attracts travelers to enjoy our world-class facilities and services. Our partnership will enable travel agencies to offer their customers a seamless journey to various destinations in the Mainland via HKIA.”

We are pleased to secure this long-term partnership, which will see us further promote the offerings of the airport to travel buyers and travelers across the world through our digital media solutions. We are confident this collaboration will continue to reinforce HKIA as connecting hub in Asia and bring more passengers to experience a hassle-free journey through this airport.”
