List of GDS System
There are several major global distribution
systems that house and process the majority of
data from hotels, airlines, and other
distributors. These include Amadeus, Sabre,
Galileo, Travelport, Worldspan, Apollo, and
Pegasus.

What is a Global Distribution System?
GDS is a worldwide "Global Distribution System"
computerized reservation network used as a single
point of access for accommodating airline seats,
hotel rooms, rental cars, and other
travel-related items by travel agents, online
reservation sites, and large corporations.  The
global companies which offer global distribution
systems are Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre, and
Worldspan. They are owned and operated as joint
ventures by major airlines, car rental companies,
and hotel groups also called automated
reservation systems (ARS) or computerized
reservation systems (CRS).

Amadeus GDS
  • Amadeus has been operating for over 30 years,
    building critical solutions to help airlines,
    hotels, railways, travel agencies, tour
    operators, and more to run their business and
    improve the travel experience.

    of the GDSs, with a potential reach to millions
    of guests. The company operates in over 190
    markets and employs over 17,000 people.

Sabre GDS
  • Sabre is a leading technology and data-driven
    solutions provider helping airlines, hotels and
    travel agencies grow their businesses and
    transform the traveler experience.
  • Sabre is seen as a pioneer for online travel
    agencies, corporate booking tools, revenue
    management, and web and mobile itinerary tools,
    to name a few.

    including 400 airlines, 175,000 hotels, 200 tour
    operators, 50 rail carriers, 40 car rental
    outlets, and 17 cruise lines.

Galileo GDS
  • Galileo traces its roots back to 1971 when United
    Airlines created its first computerized central
    reservation system. Due to the high market
    penetration of the Sabre and Apollo systems,
    owned by American Airlines and United Airlines,
    respectively, Worldspan and Galileo were created
    by other airline groups in an attempt to gain
    market share in the computer reservation system
    market.
  • The Galileo system was moved from Denver,
    Colorado, to the Worldspan data center in
    Atlanta, Georgia, in 2008, following the merger
    of Travelport and Worldspan (although they now
    share the same data center, they continue to be
    run as separate systems).

Travelport GDS
  • Travelport GDS is one of the most sophisticated
    global distribution systems for travel domains
    that allows travel agents and companies to access
    travel inventory of hotels, flights, car rentals,
    holidays, and more. 
  • Travelport has multiple APIs which offer content
    from various sources viz. Galileo XML Select,
    Galileo Web Services (GWS), and Travelport UAPI.
    With Universal API being the latest offering,
    Travelport Universal API is a consolidated
    content API, making it easy for both startup and
    enterprise Travel Businesses to build travel
    applications.

    technology leader in web-based travel eCommerce,

    distribution, technologies, and services for
    thousands of travel companies worldwide,
    including travel agencies, corporations, travel
    suppliers, and travel websites.
  • The Apollo reservation system was used by United
    Airlines until 2012 when it switched to SHARES, a
    system used by its former Continental Airlines
    subsidiary. Apollo is still used by Galileo
    International (now part of Travelport GDS) travel
    agency customers in the United States, Canada,
    Mexico, and Japan.

The Future of GDS System 
There is no doubt that global distribution
systems will play an important role in the travel
landscape for many years to come, but their
traditional role is changing and is being
challenged by all the changes taking place in the
travel industry.  Two important considerations
impacting the role of GDS systems are the growth
of online travel websites that offer price
comparisons and the increased push from airlines
and other travel service providers to encourage
consumers to make bookings directly via their
websites.  For a considerable length of time,
GDS has been serving the travel industry with
authenticity, security, speed, and efficiency to
airlines, hotels, car rentals, and many more.
