Worldspan signs Spanish carrier

Spanish low-cost carrier, Air Madrid, is distributing its fares through the Worldspan global distribution system (GDS). 
Worldspan will also provide e-ticketing capability for the airline, saving both time and money for travel agents and travellers. 

Travel agencies supported by the Worldspan GDS will now be able to offer their customers Air Madrid’s full fare content for travel in all their markets.  The agreement allows Air Madrid to tap into a truly global market and help achieve its financial and growth objectives.

Rene Weinberg, director of expansion for Air Madrid said, “Distribution through Worldspan supports our efforts to make our fares available to as much of the market as possible.”

“Air Madrid has a remarkable prospect for growth and the partnership with Worldspan gives Air Madrid the ability to increase market share within the Spanish and South American markets and to grow beyond these markets,” said Kevin Ficco, vice president - Airline Distribution and Business Development for Worldspan.
