Worldspan Extends Deal with Priceline

Name-your-price e-commerce operation Priceline.com signed a technology deal
making Atlanta-based Worldspan as its preferred global distribution system to
power the e-commerce company’s travel pricing and reservations service.


Priceline , which reported its earnings on Monday, said that it will use Worldspan ePricing
and enhancements to Worldspan Hotel Select.


Worldspan, a provider of electronic travel information, Internet products and
connectivity and e- commerce capabilities for travel agencies, travel service
providers and corporations, has provided transaction processing and other
e-commerce services for Priceline since 1998; this agreement builds on
earlier arrangements.


The agreement “…ensures that Priceline.com’s travel supplier/partners will
continue to have a familiar, reliable processing interface that provides them
with superior economics for many years to come,” said Jeffery H. Boyd,
priceline.com president and COO. Financial terms of the deal were not
disclosed.


Worldspan is owned by affiliates of Delta
Air Lines, Northwest Airlines and American Airlines.
