IRCTC to expand its product portfolio

IRCTC to expand its product portfolio

With an aim to further expand its product portfolio, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) will be inviting Expression of Interests (EOI’s) from air content aggregators, as well as Global Distribution Systems (GDS) for domestic flights inventory. The EOI will be opened by next week for one month. IRCTC will be working on a commission model with the company winning the bid. As per official sources, EOI will further allow IRCTC to expand its product offerings and make it a one-stop shop for travel products for consumers. IRCTC currently has registration of over 11 million users on the website and this will be good way to offer something more to the users. 

Further more, the company is also aggressively promoting its recently introduced web services solution which enables IRCTC to integrate their inventory on to a travel agents website/ Online Travel Agent (OTA) which further enhances the distribution scope for IRCTC. For instance, once the web services integration is completed by IRCTC and the travel agents website or OTA, the end users can book the tickets and other products from the travel agents website or the OTA.
