Amadeus and Bangkok Airways partner on new promotion to boost travel in Thailand

Amadeus, a leading travel technology partner and transaction processor for the global travel and tourism industry, has teamed up with Bangkok Airways to launch an Amadeus PRICE IT Right promotion, which rewards travel agents who make Bangkok Airways bookings through Amadeus’ distribution system. Running from 1 February to 31 May 2010, travel agents participating in this promotion stand to win great prizes, and in turn help to boost travel bookings in Thailand.

The prizes on offer include shopping vouchers, domestic air tickets and five grand prizes of package trips to the Maldives, including flights and accommodation.

“The Amadeus PRICE IT Right booking and ticketing promotion is a great way to reward our travel agents for their loyalty in booking Bangkok Airways,” said Mr. Prote Setsuwan, Vice President, Marketing, Bangkok Airways. “We are very proud to partner on this promotion with Amadeus, provider of the leading distribution system in Thailand and Asia Pacific,” he said.

Mr. Varong Israsena, Deputy Sales Director, Bangkok Airways, said, “We are already seeing an increase in the number of bookings being made by travel agents, and we anticipate that this promotion will help us to generate higher passenger numbers right throughout the promotion period. We look forward to welcoming even more visitors on Bangkok Airways to enjoy our world-famous Thai hospitality.”

Mr. Buranut Limjitti, Managing Director for THAI-Amadeus Southeast Asia, said, “We are very happy to be working together with Bangkok Airways, a long-term and valued partner, on this PRICE IT Right booking promotion in Thailand. Amadeus is always searching for ways to reward our travel agents, as well as initiatives to help our airline partners to boost their business. This promotion achieves both these objectives, as well as supporting the growth of the Thailand travel industry.”


The Amadeus’ PRICE IT Right booking and ticketing promotion programme is open to all Amadeus-subscribing agents who book selected Bangkok Airways’ flights using the Amadeus system during this four-month period. Full details can be found at
