ARCHIVED Bulletin: Travelport is Now Orbitz for Business (Posted November 26, 2007)
Stanford's online booking tool for travel has a new name: Orbitz for Business. The new web address is http://suorbitz.stanford.edu (link outdated and removed). Your previous records with Travelport will still be accessible and the site will look essentially the same. If you are in the Stanford network, simply type in suorbitz in your browser address bar. The first time you visit the site you will need to type in your Stanford email address in the member box. Once you do that, Stanford will appear on the screen under the Orbitz for Business logo.
