AXESS International Network to Adopt Travelport Technology

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 25 April 2012

Travelport has signed a long-term agreement with AXESS International Network, a leading Japanese GDS owned by Japan Airlines (JAL).

Under the new agreement, AXESS will be hosted by Travelport in its Atlanta data center as a partition of the Travelport global distribution system.

The new upgraded AXESS GDS system, which will provide enhanced functionality to connected travel agency users, is expected to be implemented by 2013.

By adopting Travelports technology infrastructure, the AXESS GDS system will be enhanced with improved connectivity to airlines and a significant increase in the range of fares, shopping, hotel and car rental capabilities available for use by Japanese travel agencies and corporations.

When fully implemented, the agreement will also allow for AXESS bookings to be retrieved and modified worldwide by any travel agent using a Travelport GDS terminal, enhancing customer service for Japanese travellers.

Ms Nakano, CEO of AXESS International Network, said, We are honoured to enter into this partnership with Travelport and feel very confident that it will enable us to expand our Japanese GDS business further. This agreement is very much aligned to our overall strategic ambitions and our ongoing commitment to remain the most innovative GDS in Japan. With the benefit of Travelports leading-edge technology, AXESS will continue to enhance its GDS business model to suit the local needs of the Japanese market. I look forward to a long and successful partnership.
