Galileo: Merchandising Ancillary Services, Updated!


Overview PA1604 (version 03):
An increasing amount of airlines offer ancillary services to complement and supplement the transportation service they provide. In line with Travelport’s continual effort to bring the full scope of the airline offering to travel agencies, it is now possible to book airline merchandise directly within the GDS without the need to turn to an airline website or other direct sales channels. Optional services offered on the Travelport GDS systems will be based on carrier participation and may vary from one region to another. Product Advisories will be issued as further content is made available.
