GDSes are an essential connection withthe Open Communication Hub.AIRS has established airline connectivity with GDSes such as:
- HP/EDS Shares
- TravelPort (Worldspan/Galileo/Apollo)
What limits a GDS is a tendency to provide the messaging bundled as part of its managed services.The Open Communication Hub allows not only airlines to interconnect easily to multiple GDSes, but to develop their own strategy (marketing, technical, etc.).That, in turn, allows their partners, in this case the GDS, to integrate its networks and applications.
