Amadeus announced it has signed (20-Sep-2011) nine distribution agreements with low-cost and hybrid carriers in 2011, improving access for travel agents to the inventory, schedules and fares of the over 74 million seats sold annually by these nine airlines. The global distribution system travel provider has signed distribution agreements with Air Arabia, Air Méditerranée, flydubai, Porter Airlines and Vision Airlines. Porter Airlines has also signed a full content agreement along with Frontier Airlines. In Europe, airberlin and Norwegian Air Shuttle have extended their relationship with Amadeus and renewed their existing content agreements. Earlier this year, Amadeus also implemented a solution enabling Germanwings to deploy e-ticketing services to travel agencies. Total bookings on low-cost carriers by travel agencies using Amadeus in 1H2011 increased by 21% compared with the first half of 2010. Approximately 70 low-cost carriers are now bookable within the Amadeus system. [more - original PR]
