Gordon Wilson, President and CEO of Travelport, commented:
"These financial results seal a transformational year for Travelport. With double-digit growth in Beyond Air and real innovations in Air, we have been able to substantively improve the strength of our Travel Commerce Platform. This is apparent in the near $90 billion of commerce transacted across the Platform last year, placing us amongst the global leaders of e-commerce marketplaces. With a 7% increase in hospitality segments booked per 100 airline tickets issued in the fourth quarter, and a nearly 60% increase in revenue from eNett over the same period, we are starting to see strong and progressive returns on the focused investments that we have made. Central to these trends are the innovations that we bring to our industry, including most recently our industry-defining Rich Content & Branding merchandising solution for airlines. With such investments, a transformed capital structure and the resolution of two key legacy contracts, Travelport is well positioned for 2015."
