Travelport GDS has extended its successful Galileo distribution agreement with InterGlobe Technology Quotient (ITQ), its established distributor in India, to also distribute the Galileo GDS in Sri Lanka. The new agreement came into effect on 1 March 2009.

ITQ has represented Galileo in India since 1994, supporting more than 4,000 travel subscribers, with 11,900 touch points spread into 333 cities in India. It has extensive associations with airlines across the region and has pioneered a range of technology solutions for its travel agency partners including Refund Tracking, Galileo Alerts, Dynamic E-ticketing and Travel Insurance.

“InterGlobe Technology Quotient has a strong track record in product innovation and service, from being the first player to introduce GDS e-ticketing into India through to offering a fully fledged e-commerce team to support online subscribers. We are excited that they will now also represent us in Sri Lanka. As part of the arrangement, ITQ will take over the existing operation ensuring a smooth handover and enabling our agency subscribers to continue working with familiar colleagues,” said Simon Nowroz, Managing Director of Travelport GDS – Asia.

ITQ’s Sri Lankan operations will continue to be serviced by the existing team therefore ensuring continuity of service and business for all of its 150 travel agency subscribers. Galileo has been present in Sri Lanka since 1998 and the business has seen tremendous growth in the last few years.

ITQ replaces Emirates as Galileo’s distributor in Sri Lanka following the expiry of its contract.
