Abacus has become the first foreign Global Distribution System (GDS) to secure IATA Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP) certification for China.
Authorised travel agents on the mainland will now be able to fulfil the entire retailing of travel products offered by foreign BSP airlines.
BSP certification for Abacus in China follows the CAAC’s licensing of the company earlier this year, to promote its proprietary travel technology on the mainland. The benefits of BSP for participating mainland travel agents include:
Consolidated reporting and remittances
Electronic ticketing, billing and collection
Improved quality control
