AMADEUS and Jetstar Japan have entered into a global distribution agreement that allows travel agencies access to the new airline's fares, domestic schedules and inventories through the Amadeus Selling Platform.
Amadeus is the first GDS to offer Jetstar Japan’s content to agencies worldwide since the low-cost carrier began domestic operations earlier this year.
Miyuki Suzuki, CEO, Jetstar Japan, said: “This agreement will make our fares easily accessible to travel (consultants) in Japan and will provide more choice for Japanese travellers.”
The addition of Jetstar Japan complements the 70 low-cost carriers already available in the Amadeus system, including airlines in the Jetstar Group such as Jetstar Australia and New Zealand, Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Pacific and Valuair.
David Koczkar, COO, Jetstar Group, said: “Now (travel consultants) across the world will have the ability to book itineraries seamlessly for customers by combining flights across the Jetstar network.”
