On Thursday 31 March, Gordon Wilson was interviewed on Bloomberg Radio – one of the world’s most influential sources of financial and business news. Gordon spoke on Bloomberg’s flagship breakfast program, "The First Word," which focuses on breaking economic, business, and market news from around the globe.
During the interview Gordon gives a general overview on the state of the global travel industry. Topics covered include the potential impact on the travel industry if Britain leaves the European Union or ‘Brexit’, the opportunities lower oil prices have created for both airlines and travelers, and the bearing of recent terrorist events on leisure travel. He also uses the opportunity to explain Travelport’s business model, how we support big online players such as Expedia, and how we have evolved to meet the changing needs of travelers.
Bloomberg’s 24-hour digital all-news radio station syndicates reports to more than 840 radio stations worldwide, and it was a fantastic opportunity for listeners around the world to hear more about Travelport.
