Amadeus, the global leader in technology and distribution solutions for the travel and tourism industry, last month signed a 10-year distribution agreement with 13 members of the Arab Air Carriers Organization.

As of 1 January 2009, air carriers Air Algerie, Afriqiyah Airways, EgyptAir, Etihad Airways, Kuwait Airways, Libyan Airlines, Qatar Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Sudan Airways, Syrian Arab Airlines, Tunisair and Yemen Airways will have Amadeus as an exclusive distribution partner in their home markets.

It is estimated that these 13 airlines account for 68 percent of reservations made by travel agents in the region.
