Gordon Wilson, President and CEO of Travelport, commented:
“In 2017, Travelport again delivered on or exceeded guidance on all financial growth targets. In line with our strategy, we achieved a strong performance in Asia and Latin America where our air share grew as we won new business. In addition, Beyond Air revenue grew by 11% in 2017 as we continued to benefit from investment in growing our digital solutions, including mobile apps, hospitality and commercial payments.
Our ongoing focus and investments in our platform saw a record level of new business signed and onboarded in 2017, with more to come onstream progressively during 2018, more than offsetting the loss of one travel agency account in the Pacific. We continue to lead our industry, being the first global distribution system to be certified at the highest level by IATA for its NDC Application Programming Interface as an Aggregator, and we have advanced further ahead of our peers with over 250 airlines now able to show their full merchandised value proposition to users of the Travelport platform. We are, therefore, well positioned for good underlying growth in 2018, particularly in the second half of the year. Travelport has a proven track record for strong cash generation that supports sustainable and profitable growth over the longer term, while presenting options for higher returns to our shareholders in line with our capital allocation policy.”
