Kayak is aggressively testing alternatives to ITA Software’s QPX solution for air shopping and pricing, according to industry sources.
Kayak has been checking out offerings from Expedia, Amadeus, Travelport, Sabre and Vayant, industry sources say.
All of the above companies offer products that they would hold up as alternatives to QPX, although Expedia and Sabre haven’t been aggressive in commercializing their offerings.
It doesn’t appear that Kayak is making any imminent moves to replace ITA Software, which is just one of the solutions it uses to access air content and pricing.
