Amadeus has implemented of Amadeus Electronic Ticket Server (ETS) with Malév Hungarian Airlines.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA), which recently selected Amadeus as a preferred partner in its endeavour to achieve ticketless travel by 2007, estimates a Euro 7 saving per ticket issued. Offering electronic tickets will help Malév to increase its operational efficiency, raise levels of customer service and grow sales.

Amadeus ETS, with nearly 20 hosted carriers and more than 50 interline pairs implemented across all continents, provides access to more than 80 markets and is constantly updated to reflect industry needs and IATA recommendations. It will enable Malév to interline very efficiently with the airlines already part of the Amadeus Electronic Ticketing community, as well as with other airlines on demand.
Mr. András Zboray Chief Commercial Officer of Malév, added: “Fast implementation means faster benefits - and this is essential for Malév. Our excellent experience with Amadeus, who offer ready-to-market solutions with quick implementation, made the decision to take the Amadeus ETS an easy one.”
