GDS & Non-GDS /XML-API Travel Gateway


The OTA framework and the application are developed on the N-Tier Client-Server architecture, which supports multi server deployment and load balancing.

 Business Need

Travel portals and Online booking tools needs to pull data from multiple data sources. These may be GDS data as well as Non-GDS data and some may be using Web Services and others maybe on API or XML model. There is no “one size fits all” approach in this case and a lot of effort goes into customising the application for accommodating a new content provider. This makes the application not stable and scalability is always a headache.

GDS & Non GDS XML/API Travel Gateway


The Solution

Our team of designers came up with a unique GDS & Non-GDS /XML-API Travel Gateway that will allow the integration of data from GDS like Galileo, Amadeus, Sabre, World Span etc and also Non-GDS carriers like Ryan Air, JetBlue, BMI etc. Non-flight components like Hotels, Cars, Transfers, Sightseeing, Hostels, Insurance etc can also be integrated using this.

The Gateway acts like a switch in such a way that you can literally turn ON/OFF each of these independent data suppliers as you wish. The other unique feature is that it results from multiple GDS can be shown on one single screen itself. The provision for accommodating travel agencies with the Single Agency – Multi Branch as well as the Multiple Agency – Multi Branch is another striking facility of this Gateway.
