A few bits of news from GDS suppliers. 


Amadeus gains Trenitalia content

Amadeus has signed an agreement to distribute Trenitalia’s content through its GDS and sales channels. Initially its high-speed products Frecce Alta Velocità (Frecciarossa and Frecciargento), and Frecciabianca will be available, with medium and long-distance routes to follow. Agents using the Amadeus Selling Platform will be able to make bookings through either an air/rail or rail-only based search solution, known as FlyByRail Track and Rail Agent Track. This is expected to be operational by the end of summer or early autumn. Speaking about increased rail content, Thomas Drexler, head of Amadeus Rail said: “It is a very exciting time for the European rail industry as it extends its network, and looks to attract new travellers to the benefits of rail travel. Key to growth is delivering the type of access and availability that is common in the airline sector which is why international distribution is critical for railways today”.
