GlobalStar signs agreement for NDC content

GlobalStar Travel Management has today announced a global partnership with AirGateway to give its partners access to NDC and low cost airline content.

Through AirGateway’s agent desktop tool, BookingPad, TMCs will get full access and end-to-end servicing of NDC content for over 28 airlines under the agency’s IATA/BSP, as well as low-cost and consolidated content.

The AirGateway platform provides a single interface to shop, book, issue, and fully service NDC airlines, with bookings automatically reporting through to each TMC’s mid/back-office to help standardise billing and reporting.

Julian Russell, Executive Director IT and Supplier Relations at GlobalStar, said: “Our new partnership with AirGateway is a positive step towards providing our partner network with choice when deciding how they book and service NDC content on behalf of their clients.

“AirGateway’s platform allows our partners to by-pass additional surcharges, while providing a consistent workflow and full servicing capabilities across a broad range of carriers.”

Jorge Díaz, CEO of AirGateway, the agreement will “help us on our mission to bring NDC-based distribution to every corner of the three relevant regions at a global scale”.
