Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 28 October 2008

Travelport GDS has added Chinese language capability to Galileo Online Travel, its sophisticated, web-based booking engine, developed specifically for travel agents and their customers.

Galileo Online Travel allows agents to provide customers with a self booking tool which has access to a wide variety of full service carriers, low cost carriers and land content via the Internet. The customer will be able to search, compare and book flights, hotel and other ground services online with results displayed on a simple to read, consolidated screen. The addition of the new Chinese language capability is a useful bonus for Chinese speaking businesses, especially in markets such as Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Other enhancements include a language display option and a Search Countries feature which enables agents to configure the countries and manage traveler access and purchase both to and from the destination. A Hong Kong agency for example may have fares departing not only from Hong Kong but also from cities in Taiwan, Taipei, Shenzhen, Shanghai and Beijing and can compare fares.

Abigail Lee, Product Marketing Manager for Travelport GDS in the region, said, “With increased competition among travel agencies and supplier websites, Galileo Online Travel has been designed to enable our agents to take advantage of additional revenue opportunities, while at the same time giving their customers the choice to book online. This is a win/win for agents and travellers.”

Agents will be able to brand Galileo Online Travel to provide a customised and distinctive online shop face to their customer base. Other features include one way combinable fare options, a consolidated screen for easy price comparison and integration of land options from Galileo’s sister companies and RatesToGo. Based on the technology behind Galileo’s successful Galileo Low Cost Air solution, it offers access to a wide range of low cost carriers, with simple search, look and book functionality.

Galileo Online Travel, available to Galileo subscribers in the Asia Pacific region, was showcased at the inaugural ITB Asia held at Suntec in Singapore last week.
