All Galileo, Worldspan and Apollo-connected travel agents worldwide now have full GDS access to Qantas’ new Advance Seat Selection product.

Under the new arrangement, all Travelport subscribers will be able to book and pay for preferred seats on Qantas flights via their desktop. By booking through the GDS, agents are ensured that their standard workflows are uninterrupted, allowing them to provide better service to their customers.

Travelport has also undertaken rigorous testing to ensure that the new booking capability will be integrated into Cross Check Travel, Travelport’s bespoke mid/back office solution for the Pacific region, providing a seamless booking workflow from start to finish.

“We have worked closely with Qantas to support this new initiative and we’re pleased to offer our subscribers global access to the new Advance Seat Selection capability. This collaboration also supports our ongoing work with airlines to enable the sale and distribution of ancillary services via the GDS,” said Andrew Middleton, Vice President of Supplier Services, Asia Pacific.
