UN/ECE - P5. Travel, Tourism and Leisure Core Components
Project leader: Paula Heilig ( paula.heilig@worldspan.com)

1. Objectives

    1.1 Purpose

    The purpose of the project is to develop Core Components for documenting the business data in travel, tourism and leisure business functionality.

    1.2 Scope

    The scope for this project and the area of travel and tourism business data to be covered includes data for the reservation functionality for multiple travel sectors. This functionality includes checking product availability, schedules, booking a travel service, providing travel documents, quoting fares and prices, and handling a booking record.


2. Deliverables

The deliverables from the project are:

  • A catalogue of core components, both cross domain and specific to travel


3. Functional Expertise of Membership

The project team is a group of experts with a high level of business and systems knowledge in the travel industry.

Note: The project team already exists and is in operation. It has been drawn from the EWG D10 Travel, Tourism and Leisure work group.. Each UN/CEFACT head of delegation may designate one or more additional experts to the group. In doing so, they may delegate this task to one or more organizations, which may be national, regional or international. Experts are expected to contribute to the work based solely on their expertise.


4. Focus

The focus is global and cross-sectorial within the functional area of travel products and services.


5. Initial Contributions

The following contributions are submitted as part of this proposal:

  • EWG D10 Travel, Tourism and Leisure MIGS

Note: These are for consideration by the project team. Other participants are expected to submit their own contributions in order to ensure the gathering of as much information as possible from those with expertise and a material interest in the project but at the same time allow diverse voices to comment on the details of the projects and ensures that no single organization can dominate the process.


Statement of resource requirements

Resources required are business user experts with the profile described under Section 3. Modelling experience is also required within the group.

Note: The project does not require any additional resources from the UN/ECE secretariat.
