Industry affairs

Let's shape the future of travel

Industry Affairs is working together with the most relevant travel and tourism stakeholders worldwide in areas of mutual interest to improve the competitiveness and sustainability of the industry going forward

Industry Affairs, led by Svend Leirvaag, is a resource for the travel industry, academia, policy makers, and governmental institutions on a national, regional, and global level. Amadeus Industry Affairs proactively contributes with insights, knowledge, and opinions, in support of increased efficiency, transparency and fair competition in the travel industry.

Industry Affairs also manages Amadeus’ Corporate Social and Environmental commitments, and we promote projects that make a real difference in communities and to the environment where Amadeus is present. In this effort we engage the resources that make Amadeus unique – our people and their talent; our technological capabilities; and our leading position in the global travel industry.

Industry Affairs oversees Amadeus’ regulatory commitments, and we engage constructively with governmental institutions not only to ensure strict compliance with regulations, but also to improve policy solutions, in particular to improve consumer rights to fair and unbiased information.

Amadeus is a member and/or supporter of several industry associations.  We are direct members of TTA and ETTSA, associate member of ECTAA, and we support Open Allies.

Amadeus Industry Affairs works to bring the travel industry together in areas of mutual interest and concern, and to improve the sustainability and competitiveness of the complete travel value chain.
