Ian Allan Travel renews with Amadeus

Amadeus, a leading transaction processor and provider of advanced technology solutions for the global travel and tourism industry, today announced that Ian Allan Travel has renewed their long-standing business partnership for another three years.

Established in the early 1990’s, Ian Allan Travel was one of the first Travel Management Companies (TMCs) to use Amadeus’ GDS platform nine years ago. Today the company has expanded its use of travel technology to include the most advanced versions of Amadeus Selling Platform, Amadeus Quality Control and Amadeus e-Travel Management corporate self booking tool.

Pat O’Neill Managing Director of Ian Allan Travel commented, “We used this renewal as an opportunity to investigate the claims of other travel technology providers in the market. Having seen what is available through Amadeus’ competitors, our conviction that we are already with the best technology partner was confirmed. Thanks to its community IT platform used by 140 airlines, Amadeus is able to offer unique benefits to TMCs including Single Passenger Name Record (PNR) which is hugely beneficial during crises such as the Volcanic Ash Cloud. In addition, our corporate clients also benefit from the many long-term airline full content agreements Amadeus has negotiated.”

Ian Allan Travel has also benefitted from the assistance of Amadeus’ Customer Solutions & Delivery team, who are tasked with business analysis and advising how Amadeus customers can streamline operations using the latest system enhancements. A recent exercise resulted in the simplification of some of Ian Allan Travel’s automated processes, which was welcomed by the company’s travel consultants.

Tim Russell, Managing Director of Amadeus UK & Ireland added, “We are delighted to have renewed our long-standing partnership with Ian Allan Travel. We wish that more companies would take a fresh look at the travel technology that is available in the market because we are confident that Amadeus offers the best solution and service to TMCs. When you consider how much technology has changed over the past 9 years since we started working with Ian Allan Travel, it demonstrates just how much both companies have successfully adapted to the changing needs of corporate travel. We are confident that our advanced and proven technology will continue to assist Ian Allan Travel in achieving their trategic ambitions.”
