Leading travel technology company Fareportal was one of four U.S. travel companies invited to accept the Mega Million Award from Malaysia Airlines at the Chateau Hotel in Kuala Lumpur last month. The company’s recent developments and innovations for its travel websites, including CheapOair.com and OneTravel.com, have resulted in a notable increase in sales for many of its airline partners.

Fareportal was acknowledged at the award ceremony as the fastest growing revenue agency for Malaysia Airlines, with a 228% increase in sales year over year. It was honored alongside other industry-leaders including C&H International, Orbitz and Tzell Travel.

“Malaysia Airlines was pleased to recognize Fareportal as one of the top ten travel companies in 2012. The year over year growth shows a strong commitment on behalf of Fareportal to help increase Malaysia Airlines’ product globally, and we look forward to continuing our partnership in 2013 and beyond,” said Thomas Spagnola, Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations at Fareportal.

Duncan Bureau, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Distribution at Malaysia Airlines said, “Malaysia Airlines is proud to work with an innovative and creative organization like Fareportal to distribute our inventory. We will continue to look for ways to create demand and brand awareness for our 5 Star Award-winning products.”

Fareportal’s strong relationships with airline partners in Asia also have a direct benefit to consumers, with the company noting increased customer bookings to popular cities including Manila, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul and Bangkok in 2013. All of these destinations are served by Malaysia Airlines through its major hub in Kuala Lumpur.
