XML Travelgate, a Spanish-based travel technology business will participate in this year’s Arabian Travel Market to kick start its move into the Middle East and Asia.
The business aggregates inventory from suppliers’ APIs into a hub and provides access through the hub to online agents and tour operators.
CEO Pedro Brücher explained that the priority for business was to talk to retailers rather than suppliers. “We have 500 connections in production with links to three GDSs (Sabre, Travelport, Amadeus), direct connections with low-cost carriers, relationships with hotel wholesalers. We just have to find the right clients who need access to that supply.”
The company is looking to sign deals with online travel agents and tour operators with a turnover in excess of Euro 50 million.
