Canadian boost for Galileo
Thomas Cook Travel, Canada, is renewing and expanding its distribution partnership with Galileo International.
Commenting on the deal, Jim Cahill, vice president, sales and general manager of Galileo says “Through the contract negotiation period we identified multiple growth opportunities between our companies, which we are anxious to delve into further in the weeks and months ahead.”
This agreement allows Thomas Cook to leverage Galileo’s merchant content and productivity tools within its solution suite. Thomas Cook is also benefiting from exclusive air content, with Galileo being the only GDS to provide full content for Air Canada without any added fees or opt in requirements.
“We have worked with Galileo for over 20 years and have found their robust yet nimble solutions to be in line with our overall goal of providing the best content and tools to simplify the booking process for our agents so they can focus on customer service,” said Warren Tom, president and CEO, Thomas Cook Travel. “Galileo’s shopping tools such as the Best Available Rate program, tour and cruise solutions and customized training, as well as our relationship with the Canadian Account Management Team, add to the continued success of Thomas Cook and are compelling reasons to continue with Galileo as our GDS provider.”
