Galileo signs six e-ticketable carriers

Galileo, a leading global distribution system (GDS) and a subsidiary of Travelport Inc., has signed up Aerosvit-Ukranian Airlines, Air Tahiti Nui, El Al, Kingfisher, China Airlines and Royal Air Maroc as new e-ticketable carriers on the GDS, taking the total to 80.

By January 2007, IATA will require 70% of all tickets to be electronic. Galileo is currently ahead of this target with more than 80% of tickets issued so far this year being e-tickets. Aerosvit, Air Tahiti Nui, El Al, Royal Air Maroc and China Airlines were joined on the Galileo system by Kingfisher, as the carrier completed electronic ticketing activation this week.

Galileo's e-ticketing is not limited to point to point journeys. Complex itineraries, across multiple destinations can be e-ticketed.
