Ryanair to severe ties with Amadeus

Ryanair has announced that it will end its global distribution system partnership with Amadeus on December 15th after both parties were unable to reach a renewed commercial agreement.

The low-cost carrier will continue to service travel agents through its partnerships with Travelport and Sabre, whose commercial agreements remain unchanged.

Ryanair spokesman Kenny Jacobs said: “Our distribution partnership with Amadeus, which has been in place since September 2014, will end on December 15th after a new commercial agreement could not be reached.

“We will continue to work together through our use of the Navitaire platform, an Amadeus company.”

A statement from Amadeus simply says it looks forward to continuing “our partnership through Navitaire.”
