Apollo was the first computerized central reservation system created by United Airlines. A significant proportion of airline tickets were sold by travel agents during the 1980s and early 1990s. Flights by the airline owning the reservation system had a preferential display on the computer screen. In an attempt to gain market share in the computer reservation system market, airlines created Worldspan and Galileo. And by inference, the commercial airline market due to the high market penetration of the Sabre and Apollo systems, owned by American Airlines and United Airlines, respectively. Nine European carriers are the forces behind the formation of Galileo in 1987-- Swissair, British Airways, Olympic, Sabena, Alitalia, Austrian Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Air Portugal, and Aer Lingus were those carriers. United Airlines spun off its Apollo reservation system, which was then controlled by Covia in response and to prevent possible government intervention. At the time of Covia acquired Europe's Galileo and merged it with the Apollo system in 1992, Galileo International was born. The Apollo reservation system has been used till March 3, 2012, by united airlines, when it switched to SHARES, a system used by its former Continental Airlines subsidiary. Apollo is still used by Galileo International travel agency customers in the U.S, Mexico, Canada, and Japan. Galileo UK was originally created from Travicom which the world’s first multi-access reservations system was using the technology developed by Videcom. Travicom was a company launched by Videcom, British Airways, British Caledonian and CCL in 1976 and in 1988, it became Galileo UK.

Travelopro is global technology dealing in the various travel solutions. Our GDS is one of the key services that it offers to its clients. In order to understand the GDS a bit better, we would like to give you a bit of insight about how it came into existence. In the early days of aviation, the airlines did not fly regularly, because of a few passenger’s ticket fares were regulated by the Civil Aeronautics Board. All information about schedules, fares, flight etc. was made reachable in the Official Airline Guide and travel agents requested reservations by phone or telex. As the number of passengers began to grow, this manual approach could not cope and hence created a need for the up gradation of the ticketing system. The very first automated booking system was set up by American Airlines in 1946 and was called Electromechanical Reservoir. American Airlines introduced a bit complex reservation system in 1953 by launching SABRE (Semi-Automatic Business Research Environment). Then came into existence DATAS, PARS, before CRS introduced and for the first-time travel agents, were allowed to make the reservations themselves. When introduced GDS instead of CRS, it was able to handle details from one to multiple airlines. Before the system had a limitation where it could handle the flight details from one airline only hence in 1980. Even if the travel agents have the option to acquire information and fare lists from the GDS, still passengers need an agent to confirm the bookings. The passengers haven’t any option to access directly. Thus, it created a new need where the airlines should provide a direct access to book tickets by the passengers; hence Internet Booking Engines (IBEs) were introduced. I.e. the Global Distribution System serve as a central system that allows transactions between various travel services provides travel agents, rental services, airlines, hotels etc. It helps to sell and buy various travel services online through some channels. Travel agencies can easily contact any GDS now to acquire its services and sign a legal bond on payments and get to access to various services that it can offer to end users keeping their commission set on each booking.
