Air Canada-Travelport GDS deal enables selling of optional services

Great news!  According to a Travel Weekly article, Travelport has signed a new GDS deal with Air Canada that includes a connection with the airline’s API (application programming interface).

The connection will enable travel agents who use the Galileo, Apollo and Worldspan GDSs to sell a range of Air Canada fares, plus optional services such as paid seat assignments, prepaid meals and lounge passes.

Travis Christ, Travelport GDS’s president of the Americas, called the integration of fares and optional products on a single GDS screen an “industry first.”

This is something the travel industry has been working on for a long time, and we are excited it is finally happening.
