The airline claims more than 22 percent of its customers are flying for business reasons, and expects this percentage to grow thanks to the new partnership.
But the airline has admitted that it won’t be putting its lowest fares on the GDS, but will instead be keeping them for its own website.
The GDS move is a major u-turn for the airline, which had always claimed it could operate without the help of agents.
But in recent months it has made major changes to its business in a bid to win more customers.
It is set to unveil a new business product soon.
