Travelport during the the third quarter processed 4.4 percent fewer segments than in the prior-year period.
Segments declined 6.2 percent in the Americas and 9.2 percent in Asia/Pacific, but edged upward 0.7 percent in Europe and 0.9 percent in the Middle East and Africa.
The company reported third-quarter adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of $106 million, down 10 percent, but when excluding the loss of the United Airlines IT services contract, adjusted EBITDA grew by 5 percent versus the third quarter of 2011.
Overall, the company's net revenue slipped 4 percent to $489 million, and operating income nearly was halved to $27 million.
"We continue to deliver on our strategy as we report a sixth consecutive quarter of revenue per available segment growth, underlying gross margin improvement and strong cash generation," according to president and CEO Gordon Wilson.
