Galileo Signs Distribution Agreement With Oasis Hong Kong Airlines

Oasis Hong Kong Airlines has signed a new agreement with Galileo for Oasis' fares and inventory to be added to the Galileo GDS.

This development will allow Galileo-connected travel agents, in particular those based in the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, to book exclusive Oasis content in the GDS.

As one of Asia's first low fare, long-haul carrier, Oasis Hong Kong Airlines' inaugural flight took place on October 26, 2006 from Hong Kong to London, pioneering a fresh approach to flying by making frequent long-haul travel more accessible and affordable to business and leisure travelers alike.

Oasis has agreed to make available to all Galileo-connected travel agents its fares, booking classes, associated inventory and other data that Oasis currently offers other distribution channels, including internet websites.

Oasis has also agreed to enter into an agreement with another Travelport brand, eBookers by providing its fares to its travel channels as well.

As a result of the agreements, Oasis is provided with a platform that enables the airline to look at travel distribution in totality, both offline and online. At the same time, the airline will also be able to sell its seats more effectively through Galileo's comprehensive coverage of agent locations. Consequently, Galileo-connected travel agents will have new opportunities to increase sales with new Oasis content available directly on their desktops.
