Amadeus-Ryanair GDS Deal Goes Live
Ryanair content is now available to travel agents via the Amadeus GDS system, for the first time in over a decade, according to an announcement.
All Amadeus-affiliated travel agents across Europe now have access to Ryanair’s low fares and Business Plus service, and route network.
“Our light ticketing technology ensures the booking process is seamless and just the same as booking any full service airline through Amadeus,” Holger Taubmann, Amadeus’s distribution senior vice-president, said.
Under the terms of the agreement, Amadeus subscribers will not be subject to any surcharge when booking Ryanair and the fares displayed via Amadeus will have parity with Ryanair’s other distribution channels, including its website.
“Our new partnership with Amadeus is a significant development for Ryanair and for businesses and customers across Europe as we continue to improve our business and customer offering,” Ryanair’s chief marketing officer, Kenny Jacobs, said.
Mr. Jacobs added that the airline this year will carry over 87 million customers on its route network, connecting 186 airports in 30 countries.
