CHICAGO, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Orbitz Partner Network, a leading
provider of private label travel technology, has launched a new partnership
with the Finnish airline Finnair to power dynamic package search and booking
capabilities on the company's U.S. website. Finnair was named winner of the

this new agreement enables travelers to leverage Orbitz Worldwide proprietary

"Finnair is committed to providing travelers with ease and peace of mind at
every stage of their journey, and this partnership provides U.S. customers
with a seamless and economical flight and hotel booking experience, all in one
simple environment with the Finnair look and feel," said Anssi Komulainen,
senior vice president of customer service at Finnair. "The intuitive user
interface along with Orbitz's extensive hotel inventory in the 70-plus
destinations we serve made it the best solution for us."

The newly launched Finnair site is accessible from the airline's U.S. homepage
and provides a seamless user experience that retains the company's distinctive
branding. Through this partnership, Orbitz and Finnair are able to extend
cost savings to customers who book a flight and hotel room at the same time
while further increasing awareness of Finnair in the U.S. market.

"We've made significant enhancements to our technology platform that make it
easy for partners like Finnair to easily and seamlessly add vacation packages
to their existing product offering," said Ronnie Gurion, president of Orbitz
Partner Network. "Whereas many of our OTA competitors do not offer dynamic
packaging technology to their private label partners, Orbitz recognizes that a
broad array of companies can benefit from this capability so we are driven to
provide the industry's leading dynamic packaging solution."

Orbitz powers travel solutions for a variety of partners, including many of
the world's leading airlines and thousands of partners globally. Orbitz
Partner Network offers a range of private label solutions for partners of all
sizes, including an easily configurable and hosted HTML solution that can be
launched quickly with no upfront costs; XML solutions that allow full control
of the user interface; and end-to-end custom developed XML and HTML solutions
