Copa Connect is the platform to access the best Copa Airlines travel agency content and services.
PANAMA CITY – Priceline and Copa Airlines announced the launch of Copa Connect content on Priceline. Priceline is the first online travel agency (OTA) connected with Copa using Copa Connect Direct, an NDC API which enables Priceline to provide its customers with premium content, ancillaries and special travel agency fares without the recently implemented one way distribution cost recovery surcharge on GDS channels.
“We believe NDC technology will create many opportunities for airlines to offer more innovative products through key partners such as Priceline. We are very pleased to be working with Priceline in our Copa Connect NDC program, which will allow us to offer our content and more benefits to our mutual customers,” said Christophe Didier, VP of Global Sales and Distribution for Copa Airlines.
“This new partnership with Copa Airlines will help us fulfill our corporate mission to provide access to best deals in the travel industry. We are excited to launch Copa Connect to offer more airfare and ancillary options for our customers,” said Matthew Bell, Global VP of Flights for Priceline.
