Under the agreement, hotels using SynXis` reservation system will be added to the Pegasus Online Distribution Database of more than 40,000 hotels.

Dreamticket.com, Continental.com, Hotwire.com and Orbitz.com. With access to this new booking channel and its multitude of consumer travel Web sites, SynXis hotels will be competitively positioned to increase Internet reservations and hotel occupancy.
“The Pegasus Online Distribution Network is a strong complement to our existing distribution,” said Sally Payze, Vice President of Operations for SynXis. “Through Pegasus, SynXis hotels will have access to some of the Web`s most popular travel portals around the world as well as several key destination city convention/visitor bureau (CVB) Web sites. This relationship opens up a completely new source of reservations and revenue growth for our hotel clients.”
