No more first come, first served - our customer-centric solutions enable you to consistently allocate limited resources or privileges (seat preference, availability on an overbooked flight, availability on alternative flights in the case of disruption, etc) to customers according to their value.

This means you are able to provide consistent and preferential customer service to your frequent travellers, who provide most of your revenue and increased revenue over the long run.

Expected financial benefits

Expected financial benefits

With a customer-centric and automated Customer Management Solution from Amadeus, customers will be able to see important and obvious differences. These translate into powerful and positive impacts on your airlines customer satisfaction and loyalty.

It is very difficult to come up with precise financial returns - not only because customer loyalty depends on so many combined factors, but also because the amount of improvement depends on your current processes.

As a guide, airlines conservatively estimate that, on average, the value of customer satisfaction improvement due to Amadeus solutions relates to an increase of around 0.4% of total frequent travellers' revenue (after 2-3 years of operation).
