This means that for the first time travel agents using Amadeus can book all published Eurowings fares for their customers, from the most affordable Basic Fare, through to the premium BEST fare, and long haul routes, while also adding seats, bags and other ancillaries to the booking.
Travel agents will also be able to change bookings and add ancillaries to existing bookings through the Amadeus system, thus save time.
“As a light ticketing carrier, Eurowings is making a wide range of content available to travel agents,” said Guido Haarmann, managing director airlines Central Europe of Amadeus. “Working with market leaders like Eurowings is a great example of how Amadeus’ low-cost and hybrid customers are taking distribution to the next level,” he added.
Amadeus is the only distribution platform to offer this wide range of Eurowings content to its travel agency users.
Agents can also respond to traveler demands efficiently because Amadeus offers full mid- and back-office integration for all light ticketing carriers, so flight tracking and changes can be done quickly.
According to Amadeus, Eurowings flights will be now available alongside Germanwings – a light ticketing carrier since 2014 – which this means that bookings on both airlines can be combined.
Travel agents using Amadeus sold 10 percent more LCC and hybrid carrier flights in the first half of 2017, and bookings with these carriers grew by 80 percent over the last four years.
