Amadeus and SpiceJet, an Indian low-cost carrier, have announced a new distribution agreement that gives Amadeus’ global network of travel sellers access to the airline’s range of fares and prices through the Amadeus Travel Platform.
This is the first time that SpiceJet has worked with a distribution partner.
By connecting to travellers through the world’s largest community of travel sellers and buyers, the airline will be able to showcase its products on a global scale, access new markets and partners, and grow its customer base.
SpiceJet is India’s second biggest budget carrier operating, on average, 516 daily flights to 59 airports, which includes eight international destinations.
The airline will soon start flying to Jeddah, which will be its ninth international destination.
SpiceJet connects its network with a fleet of 48 Boeing 737 MAX and NG jets, 27 Bombardier Q-400s and one B737 freighter.
It is also India’s largest regional player - operating 23 daily flights under the regional connectivity scheme, UDAN.
Cyril Tetaz, executive vice president, airlines, Amadeus, Asia Pacific, said: “With our partnership including distribution and IT solutions, we are very proud to support SpiceJet in its growth in India and beyond.
“Spice Jet will be able to differentiate its offers and empower travellers with the transparency and customisation they need through our global travel network.”
