Amadeus has announced the availability of Angkor Airways’ fares and inventory information on its booking system. Working closely with up to 84,000 travel agents, the Amadeus system will provide Angkor Airways with a significant expansion on its current distribution network.
“Established in 2004, Angkor Airways is still relatively new in the airline business. As such, it is important for us to continue exploring new means to widen our existing distribution network,” said Mr. Brian Lee, President of Angkor Airways. “Unparalleled in this sector, Amadeus’ extensive network became a natural choice to help increase our competitiveness. Complementing our growth strategy, the move will help further consolidate our position in the market both regionally and globally.”
Under the agreement, Angkor Airways will now provide full fare content to travel agencies via the Amadeus system. Travel agencies will therefore be able to make real-time bookings and transactions, and enjoy enhanced sales efficiency as a result.
Mr. Damian Hickey, Vice President, Airline Business Group, Amadeus Asia Pacific said: “It is an absolute pleasure to be able to work with Angkor Airways to broaden their global reach to new customers. As a technology partner for the travel industry, Amadeus is determined to help further strengthen Angkor Airways’ presence in the region. The move will enable them to leverage Amadeus’ unique system, which offers travel agents an efficient booking system with a comprehensive network of airlines.”
Amadeus is the global leader in distribution technologies, with some 500 airlines on its distribution system, representing more than 95 percent of the world’s scheduled airline seats.
Angkor Airways flies to major Asian cities like Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Kunming, Chengdu, Wuhan, Tokyo, Taipei and Kaohsiung.
