Webjet disconnects Delta in Australia New Zealand

first_imgIn an unprecedented move today, Webjet have disconnected and deleted Delta from its Australian and New Zealand website. Delta have prohibited Webjet’s North American operation and other OTA’s from promoting, displaying or ticketing the airline. “We indicated to Delta that if they pursued what we consider to be an unlawful process which may well be subject to court proceedings by us in North America, we would have no alternative but to discontinue the sale of Delta products from the Australian and New Zealand markets where we contribute substantial and growing revenue and where of course there is an intense hunger from Delta’s competitors for our traffic,” said David Clarke, managing director Webjet. Delta has acknowledged the full compliance of Webjet in relation to their North American ticketing display and other regulatory processes however, Mr Clarke feels that they have “reached a view it can cherry pick our revenue production in markets where it suits or doesn’t suit.”All legal options available to Webjet’s North American operation are currently being taken into account with the objective being to reverse the decision by Delta.
