We are Verteil

Verteil employees gather together for a team outing

Verteil was started in an effort to make travel easily accessible by bridging airlines and travel sellers together.

Founders Jerrin Jos and Satheesh Satchit, with 20+ years of experience developing solutions for the airline industry, quickly saw the potential NDC had in improving airline retailing and clearing away all the challenges within the airline distribution system. .

We have made great strides since our beginning in 2016. Our rich product offerings are helping thousands of travel sellers take care of everyday hassles in the flight booking process. Today Verteil is a proud team of 100 (and growing) with offices in India, Japan, Dubai, and Kenya.

Founders Note

Jerrin
Satheesh
Verteil’s founders, Jerrin Jos and Satheesh Satchit, have over two decades of experience developing new generation Passenger Service Systems (PSS) for the airlines industry.

Initially, they were involved with developing systems within the traditional airlines Global Distribution System (GDS) framework, which is a text and numbers only system that uses decades old EDIFACT protocol. This period helped them realise that there were serious limitations to the GDS, particularly in terms of content, ancillary services and any other information that passes between air service providers and travel agents.

An ancillary service often provides a great revenue channel for airlines if journeys could be personalised. But with GDS, personalisation and customization were quite restricted, not just for the passenger but also for travel agents. Less options for meal selections, a requirement for agents to strictly adhere to guidelines or else incur hefty penalties and time lost in ticket confirmation were just some of the issues plaguing the industry. 

With the arrival of IATAs New Distribution Capability (NDC) in 2014, a protocol that permits us to engineer products and services that are delivered over the internet, the Founders decided that the time was right to carve out a path that would harness the potentialities of this new wave technology.

Thus, Verteil was founded in Kochi, Kerala in 2016, as a premier airlines retailer that provides an integrated and efficient travel experience with flights and ancillaries, easing the strain on passengers and agents alike. Using the prowess of NDC, Jerrin and Satheesh are spearheading a movement in the airlines industry that is set to revolutionise its retailing sector, opening integrated revenue streams for the airlines industry, and creating a wholesome, one-stop experience for users.
