Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Monday, 26 March 2007

Galileo has signed a new long-term, global full content agreement with British Airways. The new three-year contract which will begin on 10 April 2007 will see British Airways fares and inventory made available to all Galileo-connected travel agents. British Airways has also agreed, under this new deal, not to impose a GDS surcharge on bookings made by Galileo-connected travel agents.

Tiffany Hall, British Airways Head of Marketing and Distribution, said, We have been working with the GDSs for some time as our previous contracts expired at the end of February. We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Galileo, which will reduce the airline's distribution costs and ensures that our lowest fares can continue to be distributed to all Galileo travel agents.

As well as providing agents with enriched GDS content, Galileo has recognised the need to develop integrated solutions focused on allowing agents to offer the most comprehensive travel content to their customers. Through Galileo Leisure, Galileo Flight Integrator (Asia) and Galileo Low Cost Air (Australia), Galileo has delivered a new way to serve the needs of full service carriers, low cost carriers and the agents by bringing airline (non-GDS, Hosted & GDS-Hosted) content to the agency desktop in an integrated way.
