Amadeus and Austrian Airlines sign long-term content agreement

Austrian Airlines and Amadeus have signed a long-term “Full Content” agreement. The contract runs until the end of 2014. As of 1 March 2010, travel agencies worldwide will have guaranteed access to the full range of Austrian Airlines fares and inventory through Amadeus, with no surcharge.

The agreement ensures that Austrian Airlines’ schedules, fares, last seat availability and associated inventory available through Amadeus will be the same and under the same conditions as in all other direct or indirect sales channels, distribution systems or websites worldwide. Amadeus is one of the most important distribution partners of Austrian Airlines.

Christina Debbah, Vice President Global Sales & Distribution, said the following: “With this new agreement, Austrian Airlines will have competitive and cost effective distribution by using Amadeus as a partner both in Austria and in our international markets.”

“This is an important step in our strategy to secure sustainable and long-term content agreements with leading airlines worldwide,” commented Philippe Chérèque, Executive Vice President, Commercial, Amadeus. “We are very pleased with this agreement as it recognises the crucial importance that long term content agreements bring to airline and travel agency partners alike.”
