GDS Booking System, Airline Reservation System, Amadeus Integration, Global Distribution System, GDS Reservation System, Sabre Integration, Galileo Integration

Unlike Hotel Consolidators XML GDS (GDS Booking System) is also a source of distributing airline and hotel inventory.

The GDS Booking System was one of the earliest invention in the world of Internet Booking Engine system to improve the airline reservation system. A computer reservation system was used for reservations of a particular airline with the interface of this global distribution system (GDS).

GDS System

GDS System

GDS is mainly used for distributing airline inventories. GDS also distributes the inventories for Hotel , Car etc.

All the information from the individual airlines vis-à-vis airline schedules, fare tariffs, passenger reservations and ticket records are pushed to this GDS system apart from their own in-house reservation system. This GDS system in turn works like a distribution channel. Travel agencies ,Tour operators and other indirect distribution channels access the same GDS as those accessed by the airlines’ reservation systems  and all messaging is transmitted by a standardized messaging system that functions high level network. Message construction standards are set by IATA and ICAO, are global, and apply to more than air transportation.

To reduce the costly inhouse reservations the airlines have decided to distribute the major contents (flight details and the seat availability) through GDS suppliers or GDS providers.

Following are the major GDS providers in the market

  • Amadeus Integration
  • Travelport (the merged version of Worldspan and Galileo Integration)
  • Sabre Integration
  • Shares Integration
  • Abacus , serving asian market
  • Travelsky , serving majorly china
  • Infini , serving majorly japan
  • Axess, serving majorly japan
  • Topas, serving majorly south korea

These GDS system is controlled by the best inventory management. The inventories contains all the flights and it’s related information for a particular pair of city with the available seats in different classes.

In real time for  each booking a unique PNR(passenger name record) is generated which contains all the details of the passenger. All these data which are captured while booking are again send to individual airline along with the customers special request or special preferences. Finally these datas are recorded for administrative and reporting activities thus monitoring the performances of the GDS providers.

To maximize the sales these GDS providers started selling their inventories through the mode of XMLs along with the hotel XMLs.

This helped the travel agents to integrate these XML or GDS system in their own website in the form of API’s  to get their own white labeled solutions.

Travel agents could sell their own tickets with their own brands.

This system inturn increased the sales of the GDS provider with reduced marketing and branding cost.

Globally, the overall revenues of individual airlines have increased to 60% in the past 10 years.

With the robust administrative panel the GDS companies or Travel agents can manage all the bookings, monitor sales and manage commissions of their sub agents.

All these XML’s are available to the travel agents and tour operators in 2 modules:

  • B2B
  • B2C

B2B (Business to Business) module helps the Travel agents to sell the airline inventories to their sub agents through their site only. The robust admin / backend helps to track all the bookings and sales by individual agents and commissions. Administrator can view the detailed reports on different bookings of Airlines by the visitors.

Login facility is given to the agents to add funds in their accounts with a certain cutoff limit. By logging in on the portal agents can book the best airline deals from their deposit accounts up to the cutoff limit and as they will reach their cutoff limit, they will not be able to book tickets from their deposit account. Then they will have the option to book from Credit Card. Agents will get the different options i.e.

  • To create sub users
  • Check different type of reports of bookings
  • Check the booking status
  • Can cancel the booking (if available with API)
  • Can check the vouchers and Invoices
  • Commission Generated

B2C (Business to Customer) module helps the Travel agents to sell the airline tickets to their direct customers or clients through their site only. The clients will enter your website and will be able to make bookings with immediate confirmation (via our XML integration gateway). With the help of a web form and the choice of payment gateway a client can book any airlines of his choice. Instant confirmations are sent to the client through SMS or email.
