Amadeus and Strategic Airlines, Australia’s new international airline, have announced a global distribution agreement that provides travel agents across the globe with access to the carrier’s international and domestic fares, schedules and inventory.
Bob Kane, Chief Information Officer of Strategic Airlines, said; “As a relatively new airline, it’s imperative that we ensure that our fare schedule can be accessed by as many points of sale as possible. With Amadeus’ reliable, time efficient and easy to manage Selling Platform, we know that travel agents will easily be able to find the fares they need to meet all their customers’ travel requirements.”
Travel agencies in Australia will access Strategic Airlines’ content through the Amadeus Selling Platform. This enables Amadeus-connected agents to access a real-time schedule and book the latest fares. They can also communicate directly with airline’s inventory system when making a booking, receiving instant confirmation.
“Amadeus is pleased to be working with Strategic Airlines in the competitive Australian travel market and hopes this contract will ensure a stable long-term cooperation with the carrier,” said Sari Vahakoski, Managing Director of Amadeus Australia. Strategic Airlines will now benefit from our extensive global network of over 90,000 travel agency points of sale that can access the airlines fares and schedules.”
