Get a bird’s eye view of all aspects of the Galileo system and learn everything you can about flight reservations, automated fares and ticketing, car hire and hotel reservations. The GDS is an internet based training solution intended for travel students, working travel consultants and tour operators. It will help you find availability with various airlines, sell seats, price international routings relevant to the IATA interline and mileage principles. It also develops skills in understanding and interpreting the GDS fare displays.
