In May 2010, Emirates Group decided to create a service-oriented platform that could host multiple travel-related business systems. Across 16 projects, the goal was to save millions in development and running costs, while also significantly simplifying the application portfolio by eliminating redundant components and interfaces. The entire platform would run on open source software.
Within a year, the Open Travel Platform was live at Emirates Group, with the first application offering sophisticated travel planning and booking services via emirates.com.
