airberlin announced (01-Oct-2012) it signed an agreement with Amadeus for Amadeus Ancillary Services (AAAS) which will enable customers to purchase preferred seats, meals and extra baggage through Amadeus travel agencies as well as on the airline's website. Amadeus travel agents in Germany, Austria and Switzerland will be able to sell additional luggage, preferred seats and meals using electronic miscellaneous document (EMD). airberlin is also using Amadeus EMD to distribute selected optional services in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Spain, and Sweden. airberlin vice president sales servicing and alliance sales Jacob Fischer said, "airberlin wants to offer a consistent service to flight guests regardless of how they book. Thanks to the Amadeus solution our guests can select a number of optional services when purchasing their ticket on airberlin.com or with any travel agent, or add on the service to their booking at any time before departure. This increases the reach of our offer as well as travellers’ loyalty". [more - original PR]
