Airline Global Distribution Systems - Increasing Focus on Technology To Offer Seamless Booking Experience To End Users

CruisePro provides 750+ Airlines including GDS carriers and LCCs (Low Cost Carriers) connecting 165+ countries offering best deals and availability.




Global Distribution System (GDS) is a computerized reservation system for reserving airline seats, hotel rooms, rental cars, and other travel-related components. Amadeus, Sabre and Travelport, Apollo, and Galileo are all global distribution systems.

Global Distribution Systems are responsible for offering booking websites with unified access to an immense inventory of flights, hotel rooms, car rental companies, cruises, and much more.

It enables travel agents, both human and technological, to review data, compare prices and schedules, and make purchases from various different vendors in real-time to quickly and efficiently establish an itinerary for their clients.

There are several GDS options, and each GDS system will have access to its own pool of carriers. The four greatest GDSs are Amadeus, Sabre, Travelport (which is the parent company of Apollo/Galileo and Worldspan).

We offer travel agency software integrated with these travel inventory supplying GDSs enabling end-customers to book flights from various LCCs and airline companies. Hence, adding to the business growth of our partner travel agents and OTAs.

Independent travel agents, online travel agents, and travel agencies now use progressively more advanced Airline GDS systems to search for the best available travel and flights and rates for their clients. Agents will make airline and hotel reservations (in real-time) for clients, and they will fulfil their research and bookings within minutes.

Actually, hundreds of airlines can be logged into a single GDS system, to which thousands upon thousands of travel agents globally have access. That’s the win-win condition of the Global Distribution System. Travel agents have access to zillions of various airline fares, and many airlines’ inventory is accessible to the zillions of travel agents who are booking flights for their various customers.

The worldwide companies which provide global distribution systems are Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre, and Worldspan. They are owned and operated as joint ventures by vital airlines, car rental companies, and hotel groups also called Automated Reservation Systems (ARS) or Computerized Reservation Systems (CRS).

The airline industry was searching for a way to streamline the travel reservation and booking process for travel agents so that they could more efficiently access data about flight schedules, fares, and seat availability.

The increase in the demand for travel agents as a means of getting the desired reservations for businessmen and leisure travelers has been expanding the relevance of global distribution systems across the world. 

Since technology is integral for the development of global distribution platforms, travel agencies are seen entering into contracts with famous tech companies to offer a seamless end-customer experience.


Why Are Global Distribution Systems Beneficial ? 


Take benefit of the power of APIs to link a variety of inventory sources to your travelers and policy. This lets you access supplier-direct pricing as well as heavily discounted corporate hotel rates sourced from the GDS (Global Distribution System) and consumer sites like Priceline. You advantage from avoiding markups and leveraging discounted rates for a win-win for savings.

To meet the expanding demand for air travel, airlines developed their own reservation systems to automate the booking process. 

We provide airlines with all channels of distribution required to increase sales from direct public bookings using the internet booking engine, direct travel agency bookings via the agent's web portal to GDS, and interline sales connecting to other airlines reservation systems via IATA Interline E-ticketing (IET).

We offer comprehensive GDS software solutions including user modules (like B2C, B2B, B2E, B2B2C), services modules (flights, hotels, cars, transfers, sightseeing, VISA, cruise, recharge), and backend admin modules. The GDS software for travel agents is also complemented by native mobile apps in Android and iOS, which can be deployed as well as the IBE or in the next phase.

GDSs have expanded to other travel services, the complete combination (i.e., flight, car, hotel) can be purchased on a single platform, eliminating the hassle of booking each component individually. GDSs also alert agents to limited-time sales, special rates, and promotional packages that further incentivize their use.

These systems, commonly known as the Global Distribution Systems (GDS), have done much to decide the shape of the worldwide travel marketplace and continue to shape it to this day.

Generally, a GDS system is one of the most crucial distributions channels for those in the airline business since it will make the airline noticeable to travel agents, who would then be able to book airlines for the benefit of their customers. This at the point can possibly simultaneously expand the number of appointments the airline creates.

Since the system is connected with such a large number of organizations and airlines, it will take this data about where the customer requirements to go and when and will check with all the linked organizations.

Travel agencies use GDS to get real-time availability, and preferred rates on flight tickets, hotel rooms, and car rentals all over the world as it enables them to be very reactive when asked for a quote.


Purpose Of GDS System




The overall purpose of the GDS is access to a worldwide distribution network. The system is connected to several airline and travel office organizations.

Since the system is connected with such a large number of organizations and airlines, it will take this data about where the client needs to go and when and will check with all the connected organizations.

We offer a broad range of data solutions to help airlines to serve their customers efficiently and market themselves. It is a productive and cost-effective distribution channel that causes carriers to grow their market reach to leisure and corporate travel.

Present-day GDS systems allow travelers to take advantage of booking hotel rooms, rental cars, airline tickets, along with other activities like outdoor tours. They also offer access to railway and bus reservations in some segments of markets, although these are not always integrated with the main system.

This allows a travel agent with a connection to a single GDS to choose and book various flights, hotels, activities, and associated services on all the vendors in the world who are part of that GDS.
We provide connections to all Global Distribution Systems (GDS) and we link to more online travel websites than any other distribution provider.

A global distribution system can also be understood as a network operated by a travel consolidator company that enables automated transactions between booking agents and vendors so as to provide real-time travel services to global consumers. 

A GDS global distribution system usually connects rates, services, bookings consolidating products and services across the major travel sectors like hotel reservations, car rentals, airline reservations, and other activities.

You attach to the GDS, giving you access to all of the travel agents your GDS is connected with. Those travel agents then sell your rooms to their clients (a mix of corporates and leisure travelers), and any bookings made are automatic.

Especially, a GDS is often used by a travel agency, to see real-time information and data about the availability of hotel rooms, flights, and other travel services. That information is very beneficial to travel agents which can then sell travel products and services to their clients.
