OPA is designed for airlines to receive real time payment where funds flow directly to the airline when a booking is made and tickets will only be issued after payment is confirmed.
THE TRAVEL INDUSTRY
OPA is integrated to multiple payment systems including all three principal GDS systems. OPA supports PNR information checking, customized checking points according to your business rules and needs, reporting and automatic ticket issuance.
OPA also integrates with other settlement and inventory systems to allow payments not just for flight tickets but also for nonflight products generating further revenue opportunities.
