Galileo already has similar deals in place with carriers such as British Airways, Air France, KLM, Virgin Atlantic and Qantas. Other participants include JetBlue Airways, Air Tran, Spirit Airlines and Air Arabia. 

Recent agreements with Jetstar Asia, Valuair, SpiceJet and AirAsia enhance the low cost inventory for travel agents in Asia. Galileo has over 50 Low Cost Carriers around the globe participate directly in the Galileo system.

“As a leading travel company we know how critical it is for travel agents to have access to all content in one place,” said Mr. Brad Holman, Travelport Airline Services Managing Director.

Holman went on to say that “We are focused on reaching agreements with airlines that address their distribution objectives and at the same time enable our travel agency partners to offer their customers the very best fares. Full content gives all parties involved in travel distribution security and sustainability in their business models going forward, whether they are GDSs, airlines or travel agencies. This is well-illustrated by the longevity of the deals we have entered into with the US majors.”
