GDS Cost Management

Reduce significantly GDS costs through processing and analysis of various sources of information that allow you to identify savings opportunities.

 

Reducing distribution costs for airlines are of great importance to maintain their competitiveness; GDS costs constitute one of its main components. Airlines do not have dedicated systems for processing high volume of information coming from different sources, aiming to facilitate cost management of distribution systems. Along with the systems, the dedication of professionals with extensive experience and knowledge is also required to identify and propose initiatives to save effective and short-term costs. Based on our experience, it is possible to achieve significant savings by performing a permanent monitoring and analysis of the costs of GDS.

 

Advitair counts with professionals and systems support to grant airlines companies the management of distribution costs, contributing and managing key initiatives to achieve the proposed savings.
