GBTA Calls on TravelSky to Rescind Action Discontinuing Sale of Domestic China Flights via Any GDS Partner

*Update: Reports are there has been a partial rollback of the aggressive action TravelSky took. The major Chinese airlines have now restored the ability of foreign GDS’s to sell many (but not all) of their fares through foreign agents.*


The announcement of TravelSky’s unilateral decision to discontinue the sale of domestic China flights on TravelSky-hosted carriers via any GDS partner (i.e. Sabre, Travelport, Amadeus) is a major setback for managed travel programs across the world.

Chinese companies rely on many different partners and solutions to ensure their travel programs are as efficient and price sensitive as possible. This short-notice mandate to shift all bookings to TravelSky will negatively impact those efforts. Additionally, this move will cause booking confusion and lost revenue for these Chinese airlines.

GBTA calls on TravelSky to rescind this action immediately.
