Amadeus recently launched an IT solution as a more efficient means of filing private fares in the distribution system. Fares are now filed through the FareXpert Filing Platform and the XML Fare Data Interface.
According to the global travel distribution system, the new technology enables airlines, consolidators and travel agencies to implement the results of negotiations between airlines and their distribution partners over fares.
Negotiated or private fares filed via Amadeus filing solutions account for roughly 40 million Amadeus bookings each year, according to the provider. Amadeus XML Fare Data Interface allows large volumes of fares to be loaded automatically from an in-house database to the Amadeus system.
