Amadeus is increasingly recognised as the world’s number one system for international travel reservations. Worldwide, over 102,000 travel agency and airline sales office terminals are now connected to Amadeus. Austrian Airlines becomes the 100th Amadeus Access carrier using Amadeus Access connectivity to sell its flights through the 47,500 travel agencies and 34,500 airline sales offices that were now connected to Amadeus worldwide.
Amadeus signs a distribution agreement with SNCF, the French state owned railway company which marks the first significant development in selling rail solutions alongside airline products through one and the same system – Amadeus. Amadeus Hotels is enhanced by the implementation of Negotiated Rates, which allows hotel chains to load many different rate types against the same room type.
