? Airline seating charts

Lowry adds that Checkmytrip functionality doesn`t stop there. “The site is available in 11 languages so far,” he said. This online itinerary tool is also being made available to Amadeus customers worldwide via localized websites designed to suit their specific needs.
Checkmytrip also lets users print travel plans; offers a customized e-mail option that notifies friends and family or business associates of the latest changes in itinerary. Once a trip is booked through one of the thousands of Amadeus travel professionals or online booking sites connected to the Amadeus System, an e-mail containing the trip details along with the URL link to the Checkmytrip site is immediately sent to the traveler by their Amadeus agent. The traveler reviews their e-mail trip details or simply clicks the link to launch their personalized travel itinerary. If the traveler does not have access to e-mail, they can obtain their travel plan details at anytime by logging onto the Web site, www.checkmytrip.com
Checkmytrip also provides a great way for Amadeus travel professionals to increase customer satisfaction by sending directed marketing e-messages and quickly responding to customer inquiries. Additionally, if travel plans change, the information is instantly updated.
Security offered on this web site is based on a technology called Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”), which lets the browser automatically encrypt or scramble the data before it is transmitted. Amadeus and its travel professional community maintains a high level of integrity, security, and usage guidelines for the traveler information it represents.
