American and Expedia Deal Wins GBTA Approval

April 5, 2011 By: George Dooley Travel Agent

The newest agreement between American Airlines and Expedia on the distribution of American Airlines’ inventory, restoring American Airlines fares to Expedia and Hotwire through the Global Distribution System (GDS), has won approval from the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA).

“We are pleased to see cooperation leading toward an effective solution that serves both American Airlines and Expedia,” Michael W. McCormick, executive director and COO of the GBTA said. “ As with any technology based system there is always room for innovation and we believe a collaborative approach that does not fragment the market is the best possible outcome.”

“In the end, with industry participants working together, we can improve on current technology and continue to focus on the tenets that are critical to business travel procurement: transparency, access, and competition,” McCormick said.

The GBTA consists of more than 5,000 members who manage more than $340 billion of global business travel and meetings expenditures annually.
