easyJet first to adopt Amadeus’ major enhancements to help travel agents book LCCs

17-Sep-2013 7:13 AM

easyJet and Amadeus announced (16-Sep-2013) the launch of unique system enhancements that will allow travel agents, in a phased approach, to book low-cost carriers with the same booking flow as that used for traditional carriers, regardless of the airline’s distribution preferences. easyJet is the first carrier to become a light ticketing airline in the Amadeus system, thereby improving the way in which travel agents access, book and provide service when selling easyJet services. The development is expected to increase bookings with the new pricing, ticketing and booking functionality offering the same look and feel as for traditional or flag carriers. For the first time, traditional shopping, booking and back-office flows will be combined with real-time dynamic fares and a full ancillary offering provided through easyJet’s XML connection with Amadeus. This will give all travel agencies, including corporations and TMCs, which use Amadeus, even better access to easyJet’s great value inventory than before. [more - original PR]
