Amadeus Negotiated Space

Amadeus Negotiated Space

Amadeus Negotiated Space is an automated, flexible and customisable product that enables airlines to allocate a group of seats or “blocked space” to their distribution partners. The airline has full control of its blocked space inventory, which is synchronised in real time with the Amadeus system, and can determine the number of seats it makes available within specific date ranges. Negotiated Space also allows automatic seat re-accommodation following schedule changes or cancellations.
Key benefits
  • Enhance passenger experience: facilitates sales in real-time and enables travel agents to provide superior levels of service to airline end-customers.
  • Optimise distribution: fully synchronised with the airline’s inventory.
  • Increase productivity: reduces time spent on functions including PNR servicing, past date booking requests, availability and fare checks.
  • Improve service to preferred travel agents: automates group handling.
Main features
  • Allotment synchronisation flexibility: the negotiated space system supports forward and backward synchronisation, giving airlines the choice of triggering actions from their system or not.
  • Automated blocked space reduction: seat reductions (due to contractual conditions) can be triggered by Amadeus twice during the allotment life cycle (known as reduction and expiry features), saving airlines the extra work.
  • Automated re-accommodation/schedule change on associated PNRs: the Amadeus system maintains data integrity and transfer of passengers to new allotments upon airline requests.
  • Enforce booking from negotiated space and integration in neutral display: the airline can automatically control agencies in order to ensure they book from the allotments before booking from public inventory.
  • Sharing of allotments between several point of sales: the negotiated space data model allows the definition of logical entities composed of different point of sales as owners of allotments.
  • Web based reporting tool to track and monitor allotment activity (e.g; % allotment used on certain routes…).
  • Allotment Management interface/Web Services to service allotments efficiently.
