The Galileo Expert course provides you with extensive knowledge for operating the Galileo Global Distribution System. Developed by United Airlines, it is a well-known booking system for airports, leading airlines and tourism agencies. This Expert course covers the same subjects as our 50-hour “Introduction” course but in much more in depth detail with more examples and exercises.
Galileo is used as a booking system for companies such as British Airways, KLM, Swissair, Southwest Airlines and Aer Lingus. Once you have learnt Galileo it is quite easy to cross-train to another GDS like Amadeus and Sabre.
VIASINC is recognised as the most experienced travel technology training company operating in the global education community. Offering our learners the skills required to work in the travel and tourism sector with vocational training in Amadeus, Galileo and Sabre booking systems.
Up to 50 hours which is around 30 minutes per day for 3 months.

Don’t worry if you do not complete the course within this time, you can easily extend your access by purchasing an extra 6 months access. Or if you need more hours to take and pass your course? We offers packages of 5, 10 or 20 additional hours.
