Amadeus unveils the first prototype of AmadeusPro, the revolutionary interface for Amadeus users. The interface can save travel agents 50-80% of effort that it normally takes when making a reservation for a standard flight, car or hotel. Thai airlines becomes Amadeus’ first Asian partner, a further seven airlines become system users.
The Amadeus Network (Amanet) goes live, enabling travel agencies to connect to national reservation systems and to the Amadeus central system once it is operational. Amadeus launches new national marketing companies in Belgium and Scandinavia. Amadeus Belgium is the first NMC to be opened outside a country in which an Amadeus partner airline is based.
