award-winning online travel management solution


Huawei Technologies is
the first customer in Greater China to adopt Amadeus’ award-winning online travel
solution, Amadeus e-Travel Management (AeTM).


This corporate online travel solution will help Huawei administer its global
employee travel needs and manage its corporate travel policy in a seamless manner,
thereby increasing its efficiency manifold. With the successful implementation of
AeTM in Greater China, Huawei is planning to roll out the solution in its other
markets which include Latin America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.



The flexible, integrated AeTM system offers corporate end users a one stop shop
ability to make air, car and hotel reservations, while linking to key national
railway systems and low-cost carriers. Its low fare search capabilities ensure
corporate travellers have a wide choice of travel options and access to the best
available travel rates.


Mr.Ren Shulu Vice President of Huawei, said, “As a global provider of next
generation telecommunications networks, Huawei has complex corporate travel needs.
Amadeus was the perfect technology partner to help us provide the flexibility we
require while integrating all the elements of our corporate travel programmes onto a
single platform, simplifying the travel process for our employees and reducing
travel costs.”


David Brett, President, Amadeus Asia Pacific, said, “We’re delighted to have Huawei,
our first AeTM partner in Greater China implement our award-winning solution to
address their corporate travel needs. AeTM allows Huawei’s travel managers to
customise the system, to accommodate the company’s travel guidelines and manage
employees’ travel itineraries more easily, streamlining the process and eventually
leading to reduced travel expenditure for the company.”

manage their global travel programmes more efficiently and cost-effectively. Amadeus
