Global Distribution System


Originating in the 1960s, Global Distribution System (GDS) altered the way in which airline inventory distribution is done. However the traditional legacy GDS launched in the era of brick & mortar commerce is increasingly reinventing itself into an agile inventory distribution combined with the prowess of integrating rail, hotels, cruise and other travel inventory.

Today the simple airline distribution system has graduated to become the next generation fully integrated platform. It can provide unified experience from ticketing & reservations to departure control, fares management to mobile and multichannel support.

IGT has deep understanding and proven experience of working on 6 major GDS including Apollo, Galileo, Worldspan, Sabre, Amadeus, Travelsky.
