Aided by Travelport’s API technology, the company’s new bespoke in-house agency booking system will now benefit from intelligent, fast and accurate search of high-quality content from over 400 airlines, 650,000 hotel properties, and 35,000 car rental locations.

With over 260 airlines signed up to use Travelport’s  merchandising technology, FCM will also benefit from being able to display, gain insights from and sell branded fare families and ancillary products (such as paid seat assignments, baggage fees, priority boarding, etc.) from these airlines.

It is the first global distribution system operator to be certified by IATA as a “Level 3” Aggregator under its New Distribution Capability (NDC) initiative.

Commenting on the new agreement, Mr. Mohammed Wanyoike, the Founder and CEO at FCM Travel Solutions Kenya, said: “We are committed to providing our customers with unsurpassed travel experiences. Extending our partnership with Travelport to use its best-in-class API technology will be a key enabler in providing our new booking application with the business logic, automation and intelligent search of travel content required to succeed.”
