Global Distribution Systems
Did you know?

GDS stands for Global Distribution System. The GDS are consolidators of airline and hotel inventory, fares and pricing. They deliver this content in a common format to the travel agencies.

The agencies use a common set of entries or a GUI to sell and ticket this variety of airlines’, hotels’ and other travel vendors’ content to their customers. The latest additions to the GDS repertoire is Low Cost Carrier (LCC) content, third party non-air content, and airlines ancillary services as meals, seating, and excess baggage.
