Expedia (NASDAQ: EXPE), one of the largest online travel companies, has landed a massive deal with Air France, the national carrier of France. Following the agreement, Expedia’s travel affiliate network will provide over 160,000 hotel listings on websites operated by Air France. The listings, which have already gone live on the domestic site of the French airline, will soon be launched across the 60 international websites operated by Air France. The deal from Expedia follows another deal between Expedia and Travelocity announced about two weeks ago. Following the deal with Travelocity, Expedia will manage the Travelocity websites across the United States and Canada. Travelocity in turn will get access to Expedia’s content as well as its customer services. The deal is significant as it means lesser competition for Expedia, which isn’t exactly good news for travellers. The Expedia stock had a noticeable gain of 3.5% in the last trading session to close at $48.91.
