By deploying e-ticketing, airlines contribute to their own operational
cost-efficiencies, improve their revenue accounting processes and enhance
service to their customers.  E-ticketing allows travellers to enjoy greater
freedom and efficiency.  Galileo`s agency customers will also enjoy benefits
from this service enhancement.

customers, travel agencies, and travellers in the Asia Pacific benefit from
these latest e-ticketing successes in the Galileo(R) system,” said Janie

“Galileo continues to work with the major airlines serving the Asia-
Pacific region to increase the deployment and adoption of this service.”
