Resumen

Distribution has been a key ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) area for airlines since decades ago and is a sector dominated by four (now three) Global Distribution Systems (GDSs) whose primacy has been threatened over the last three years by a set of new players, the so called GDS New Entrants (GNEs). GNEs emerged with the advent of Internet and open source technology as ‘disintermediation’ facilitators and generated vast interest from airlines because of their proposition to reduce the cost of distribution. This paper explores the impact of ICTs on airlines with a focus on GDSs, provides an overview of the changing market dynamics, analyses the environment that led to the appearance of the GNEs and pinpoints the issues behind their until now failure to provide a true alternative to the GDSs. The analysis complements existing academic research in that it clarifies the critical issues in the air travel distribution field and provides an overview of current industry developments.
