The OpenTravel Alliance (OTA) is pleased to announce the publication of the 2002B Specification that provides the travel industry and travel related services the ability to deliver new features and enhanced capabilities to travelers, through enhanced XML transactions.
The 2002B release enhances messages previously released, as well as, introduces new messages across all of the work groups. The Air, Car, Hotel and Travel Integration Work Groups have each provided an introduction to highlight new features and enhancements offered in the 2002B Specification.
OTA would like to thank all its 120 member companies, project teams, working groups and committees that worked so diligently to provide a richer, more robust specification and further travel technology and XML development. Thanks to this effort, the OTA is one step closer to its goal to create a common and complete XML dialect for the travel industry.
