Airlines today said it extended by two and a half years its global distribution
content agreement with Travelport GDS, shifting its expiration date from next

the extension makes all of Continental's "published fares and related seat
inventory, including Web fares, available on its own site, reservation offices
and through third parties" available to Travelport's Galileo and Worldspan
GDS subscribers under the same terms of its previous agreement.
When Delta Air
Lines renewed its major GDS agreements, it signed seven-year deals that expire
