Amadeus Integrates TelMe Online`s Ticket Window

today announced the integration of TelMe
Online`s Ticket window, an award winning online travel software package
designed to provide agents with quick and easy access to their own special
fares database.

By integrating with TelMe Online`s Ticket Window, Amadeus agents can use the
Telme technology to interrogate real-time price and availability for nearly
500 airlines, 63,000 hotel properties and 48 car hire companies. Bookings
made online are then automatically placed onto the agency queues for
fulfilment and ticketing. The Ticket Window Internet Booking Engine also
provides an extensive range of search and display options, including the
ability to simultaneously compare published and negotiated fares, in
addition to enabling users to set up, maintain and delete profiles in a fast
and efficient manner.

Jim Long, Director of Longreach Travel, elaborated, `The TelMe system has
proved very successful for our members of The Advantage Focus Group who have
been able to quickly and easily search, access, accurately fare-build and
queue bookings back to their own systems for ticket issue. Naturally we are
very pleased that TelMe will now be expanding the system to interact with
Amadeus GDS`.

`We are in our third year of using Amadeus as our GDS system and we find
that their technology is excellent. My travel consultants are reporting that
response times are very swift and Focus4Fares bookings are back on their
desktops within seconds.`

TelMe Online`s managing director, Peter Muller, explained, `Our Ticket
Window technology has been successfully deployed within The Focus group over
the past year and our flight booking system has now been developed and
extended to be compatible with all the major GDS products including Amadeus.
This is of course a very important factor for our clients who are now able
to gain even more benefits from our technology.`


Commenting on these latest enhancements, Arnaud Debuchy, managing director
of Amadeus UK said, `This integration with TelMe illustrates Amadeus`
partnership approach to doing business. By listening to the needs of our
customers and working with strategic IT partners, Amadeus is able to offer a
growing range of solutions that help UK travel agents add customer value,
streamline processes and boost profitability.`
