From 1 February, all trade partners on Amadeus will be able to access Emirates’ content free of surcharge.
The new agreement will also see Emirates’ NDC (new distribution capability) content integrated into the Amadeus Travel Platform, with NDC content being made available to travel sellers over the course of 2022.
“With this new agreement with Emirates, we start 2022 building on the momentum made over the years to support modern retailing and once more demonstrating our commitment to continue offering through the Amadeus Travel Platform more travel content globally and at scale,” said Decius Valmorbida, president of travel at Amadeus.
Catering to a dynamic marketplace, Emirates also aims to provide its trade partners with a choice of connection options and differentiated products and benefits across channels, including via its own NDC-enabled direct connect platform, the Emirates Gateway.
“In today’s environment, and particularly as the industry rebuilds post pandemic, everyone in the travel services chain will benefit from flexible models of engagement, multiple means to access to dynamic rich content, and the ability to offer differentiated products and services,” Emirates Chief Commercial Officer Adnan Kazim said.
