Galileo (and Worldspan)

The Galileo Central Reservations System is one of the main computer reservation systems designed for the travel industry by a consortium of airlines.

The Galileo system by holds information on all airlines in a single database and allows a single booking record to be created if multiple flights are needed.

Almost all airlines in the world are accessible through Galileo or similar systems.

Galileo can also be used to book hotels, car hire, or even some train tickets.

In December, 2006, Travelport, owner of the Galileo CRS and Orbitz agreed to buy and merge with Worldspan.

Worldspan provides worldwide electronic distribution of travel information, Internet products and connectivity, and e-commerce capabilities for travel agencies, travel service providers, and corporations.

Worldspan’s primary system is commonly known as a Global distribution system (GDS) that is a software used by travel agents and travel related websites to book airline tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars and associated products.

Some companies will ask you to be familiar with Worldspan’s or Galileo before applying for the position as that is the software they use.

Many colleges and independent training centers in Ireland offer Galileo training as part of their travel and tourism courses. Others offer it by way of distance learning.
