Orbitz signs distribution deal with NH Hoteles

Orbitz Worldwide said Friday it has reached a distribution agreement with NH Hoteles, based in Madrid, to make the European hotel chain's inventory available across multiple Orbitz brands.

The company said NH Hoteles' inventory will be available at Orbitz.com, Cheaptickets, ebookers and HotelClub.

NH Hoteles operates 341 hotels that provide some 49,500 rooms in 21 countries in Europe, South America and Africa.

Brian Hoyt, an Orbitz spokesman, said the move helps grow non-air revenue and increases merchant hotel inventory, both high on Orbitz' list of business objectives for 2008.

"As we work to build out our international inventory, this agreement with NH Hoteles provides our customers with more lodging options across Europe in key destinations," Peggy Bianco, vice president of global hotel supplier relations for Orbitz, said in a release. "The addition of this inventory demonstrates our company's commitment to growth globally for both our suppliers and customers who do business with us everyday."

Inigo Onieva, chief of marketing and e-distribution for NH Hoteles, said in a statement that the partnership will open "a whole new group of internationally-based savvy travelers who can now experience our world-class hotel properties."
