Amadeus today announced that fifty leading airlines in Europe, Middle East and Africa have agreed to give Amadeus subscribers low fares, full schedules, last seat availability
and associated inventory for distribution through all channels, under the
Amadeus Full Content Option, announced in November, 2004.
With this, Amadeus gives travel agents the peace of mind of knowing that
they have access to the web-fares of the largest airlines in their market.
Moreover, travel agents can make bookings on 25 low-cost carriers, including
Air Tran and Independence Air in the US and Westjet in Canada and Air Berlin
in Germany. Finally, Amadeus’ pioneering agreement with British Airways,
announced in February 2004, is still delivering essential low-fare content
to travel agents in the UK.
David Jones, Amadeus’ Executive Vice President, Commercial, says,
“Delivering the right content to our travel agency partners in 217 markets
around the world is absolutely fundamental to our business. We will continue
to invest to ensure that Amadeus has the widest range of relevant travel
content on offer - whether that is web fares, unique hotels, or the world’s
widest range of cruise lines.”
