Amadeus will provide Europebyair.com with its latest technology services including its new customized B2B platform, “Corporate Traveller,” which offers a low fare search product that allows subscribers to search efficiently for the best fares.
Europebyair.com will complement these technology services with the best products in its portfolio of discounted travel products and technology support. Europebyair.com’s website is displayed in seven languages and offers thousands of discount airfares from 15 carriers operating within Europe and to and from Europe and the U.S.
It was also announced that using the Amadeus online technology, Europebyair.com will power the travel section of a new B2B portal to be released in France in the coming weeks. This new generation of B2B marketplace will benefit from Amadeus« advanced concept of electronic ticketing and corporate negotiated air fares and represents a milestone in the corporate travel sector in France.
“We are fully committed to business-to-business e-commerce. Amadeus Corporate Traveller provides leading edge technology for business-to-employee portals, which companies are increasingly using to allow their employees to make their travel reservations online, while enforcing the company business rules. We are happy to see the dynamic Europebyair.com benefiting from the Amadeus online technology offer. We are confident that this initiative will meet with great success in the small- and medium-sized enterprises market,” said Philippe Chérèque, Amadeus Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy.
