Amadeus to discontinue United Airlines' planned move to Amadeus Altéa in 2013

11-May-2011 8:17 AM

Amadeus announced (09-May-2011) it has agreed to dissolve a contract under which United Airlines previously planned to migrate onto the Amadeus Altéa Suite in 2013. Following United Airlines’ decision to merge with Continental Airlines, and as part of its overall integration efforts, the carrier has decided to migrate to Continental Airlines’ existing IT system and will review its alternatives for a long-term IT solution in due course. Therefore, United will not be continuing with its planned implementation of the Amadeus Altéa Suite. United Airlines will make a one-time payment to Amadeus in consideration of the change in plans. The two companies intend to continue working closely together to pursue opportunities for partnership in the future. [more]
