Galileo, a leading global distribution system (GDS) and subsidiary of Travelport, has been awarded one of the highest accolades at the National Travel Industry Awards for Excellence 2007, taking home a Supplier Award for Best Agency Support Service in Australia.



An initiative of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA), the awards recognise those companies which have provided outstanding service to the travel industry over the past 12 months, and are voted for by Australian travel agents. The winners were announced at a Gala Awards Dinner at the Sydney Westin on Saturday 14 July. Galileo was chosen from five other finalists in the category.



Shelley Beasley, Managing Director of Galileo Southern Cross, said that winning the award was an honour and further confirmed Galileo’s position as a leading GDS in Australia. “Galileo aims to deliver relevant, leading-edge products and extensive travel content to travel agents, combined with a support infrastructure that is second to none. Galileo is the only GDS with a support team based in Australia, and this award clearly demonstrates that our customers recognize the value we bring to their businesses,” she said.



The AFTA award follows on from Galileo’s recent success at the inaugural Travelweekly Asia Travel Industry Awards, where Galileo won “Best GDS” in Asia. With this award, the judges noted in particular, the Galileo system’s ease of navigation, extensive content and the company’s track record in innovation, demonstrated by the launch of several new products.
