As a result of the brand evolution programme, we change our official name
from Amadeus Global Travel Distribution to Amadeus IT Group. The European Commission announces that Amadeus is the leading European travel and tourism company in terms of the level of R&D investment and Amadeus announces the creation of an Innovation Department in Sophia Antipolis.
We reorganise our commercial operations with National Marketing Companies (NMCs) becoming local Amadeus Commercial Organisations (ACOs). We complete the acquisition of TravelTainment,
a provider of booking engine technology in the German leisure travel market. We sign global technology partnership with Eurostar
, the high-speed passenger train service linking the UK with the European continent.
