quotes Travelport deputy group CEO Gordon Wilson saying Travelport would "announce a partnership with a self-booking tool provider that covers the European, Asian and Australian markets," and "sign a partnership deal with a different booking tool provider in the United States."
Wilson said Traversa was suited for large corporations; "for others, it may be a sledgehammer to crack a nut."
