Home > Issues > Distribution

Distribution for airlines refers broadly to the various channels to sell the airlines’ products and services to the customers.

Driven by rising costs, competitive pressures, and changing technology, AAPA member airlines are exploring alternatives to expand their distribution offerings, and at the same, increase cost effectiveness for distribution.

AAPA offers members a forum to debate distribution related issues such as CRS deregulation in the US, the proposal to revise the EU CRS Code of Conduct; and explore means of reducing distribution costs such as Electronic Ticketing, E-commerce, GDS efficiency issues, and new / alternative distribution channels. AAPA has participated actively in consultations with the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and European Commission on legislative proposals, developed best practices on reservations, and conducted joint trainings, all part of AAPA's initiatives to help member airlines in their aim to achieve a more cost effective distribution strategy.

AAPA is the trade association for international airlines based in the Asia-Pacific region, addressing a wide range of issues affecting air travel.
