Galileo Signs Agreement with U.S. Airways

Galileo International, a subsidiary of Cendant Corp. has signed a five-year, full-content enterprise agreement with US Airways, the largest full-service, low-cost airline in the U.S. The agreement designates Galileo as a preferred distribution channel for US Airways ticket sales. Through the agreement, all US Airways published fares and inventory, whether flown under the America West or US Airways brand (including web fares available on its own site and through third parties) will be available to all users of the Galileo GDS system including Galileo-connected travel agencies and Cendant TDS online agencies booking through Galileo. Earlier this month, United Airlines signed a five-year participation agreement with Galileo. "This long-term content agreement with US Airways is a very positive outcome for our agency customers, the airline and Cendant TDS and makes sense for all parties," said Kurt Ekert, senior vice president, supplier services for Cendant TDS. "Our travel agents, corporate travelers and consumers will continue to have access to all published fares offered by US Airways and America West." According to Scott Kirby, executive vice president, sales and marketing, US Airways, "With this agreement our customers can continue to seamlessly book US Airways and America West inventory through their booking channel of choice."
