WorldTicket has now become a full member of the Open Travel Alliance. This is not only for the benefit of WorldTicket and our solutions, but it is also a new initiative that can have a direct positive influence on our customers.
OpenTravel has existed since 1999 and their mission is to ensure that the information from suppliers in the travel industry to the travellers runs as smooth and unproblematic as possible. This is done by setting specifications for the members and thus create a connection between multiple systems. Therefore an OpenTravel membership functions as a seal of approval to our customers and stakeholders, as WorldTicket is committed to develop products that adhere to the OpenTravel standards and interface.
The OpenTravel membership list counts solution providers, travel agencies, airlines, car rental companies etc.
This membership will influence our customers directly, as they can be integrated with the major international travel portals that are already members of OpenTravel, such as Expedia. By being integrated with them they get an opportunity to sell more as their visibility is increased significantly when they are exposed to web users all over the world.
