AirAsia India pens new global distribution agreement with Amadeus

AirAsia India joins the rest of the AirAsia group to offer their content via Amadeus travel agents worldwide.

BANGKOK, Thailand – Amadeus, a leading technology partner for the global travel industry, and AirAsia India, the newest Low Cost Carrier in India, announce a new agreement making AirAsia India content available to Amadeus-connected travel agencies worldwide.
AirAsia India is the most recent member of the AirAsia group to make their content, schedules and fares available through Amadeus. AirAsia India will benefit from Amadeus’ light ticketing technology allowing travel agencies to view and compare AirAsia India fares in the same screen as full-service carriers. Thanks to light ticketing technology, travel agencies can book AirAsia India in Amadeus, faster than via any other booking channel.
Mittu Chandilya, CEO, AirAsia India, said, “In the fiercely competitive Indian aviation industry, Amadeus will help set us apart from the competition. With their unmatched global network of travel agencies and industry expertise, we are confident that Amadeus will be the ideal partner to support our ambitious growth targets.
Hazem Hussein, EVP Airline Commercial, Amadeus Asia Pacific, added, “India is a booming market for Low Cost Carriers. We are seeing more travellers who want a low cost option via their travel agency when travelling in India. AirAsia is a long term Amadeus partner and we are thrilled to see the newest venture, AirAsia India joining the partnership.
Today, over 70 LCC and hybrid carriers are bookable in the Amadeus system while over 85% of Amadeus bookings worldwide are made on airlines with which Amadeus has a content agreement.
