1992

System user airline sales offices migrate to Amadeus for all reservation requirements

The start of a new era! The first Amadeus Passenger Name Record (PNR) is created

At 2:47am on the 7th January 1992, the first Amadeus Passenger Name Record (PNR) was created in the central system. The first of millions of bookings that Amadeus users will create in the system from now on. Airline sales offices successfully migrate to Amadeus, replacing their national systems for all reservation requirements. More than 16,000 terminals in the sales offices of Air France, Iberia and Lufthansa in 120 countries successfully switch to the Amadeus system. Sales agents now have access to more than 20 times the volume of the air transport information previously available in their national systems.
 
We launch Amadeus Cars and Amadeus Hotels offering agents easy access to information on more than 10,000 car rental locations and 10,000 hotel properties worldwide.
