Galileo International today announced that it has implemented domestic e-ticketing for Bangkok Airways, Thailand’s second largest airline. Bangkok Airways is the first airline in Thailand to offer domestic e-ticketing through the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP).
“We welcome the decision by Bangkok Airways to commence their domestic e-ticketing with Galileo,” said Janie Kaung, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Galileo’s Asia Pacific region. “We have been especially active in the Indochina markets of Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam in the past 18 months in terms of signing new airline customers to Galileo, upgrading the participation levels of existing airline customers and opening new offices. This latest initiative from Bangkok Airways underlines our continued close involvement in these markets.”
Peter Wiesner, Vice President Marketing, Bangkok Airways, added: “We are delighted to implement domestic e-ticketing in Thailand with Galileo. Bangkok Airways has built a close and productive working relationship with Galileo and we look forward to the service improvements, cost savings and efficiencies that e-ticketing for our domestic market on the Galileo GDS will undoubtedly deliver.”
