Amadeus rolls out bespoke booking solution for AirAsia content
Manila, June 1, 2012

AMADEUS, in partnership with AirAsia, launched today a new travel booking tool, Amadeus LCC Smart, which allows travel consultants to book AirAsia content using a web-based graphical user interface within the Amadeus GDS.


The release of Amadeus LCC Smart follows the commencement of Philippines’ AirAsia’s domestic services earlier this year (TTG Asia e-Daily, March 29, 2012).


Marianne Hontiveros, CEO of Philippines’ AirAsia, said: “This partnership provides easy access not only to Philippines’ AirAsia destinations, but to AirAsia’s (entire) network that spans more than 20 countries and 75 destinations across Asia and Australia.”


Developed to add value to Amadeus Ticketless Access – a solution that displays real-time fares and flight information from LCCs, Amadeus LCC Smart reduces the complexity of the booking process by simplifying the number of keystrokes required to finalise a booking.


Travel consultants can also book AirAsia flights and ancillary services at one go, reducing the time spent on click through, and can even add, remove or modify ancillary services, seats and passenger information after pricing.


David Brett, president, Amadeus Asia Pacific said: “Amadeus LCC Smart optimises workflow for travel (consultants) with the familiar AirAsia website interface, but without the need to learn different commands or leave the Amadeus Selling Platform.”


Amadeus LCC Smart is available free-of-charge to travel agencies utilising the Amadeus Selling Platform distribution system in the Philippines, Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam. The solution will be offered to additional markets in Asia-Pacific later this year.
