Southwest Airlines and Amadeus IT Group Partner

April 19, 2012 By: George Dooley Travel Agent

Southwest Airlines and Amadeus IT Group report they have entered into a joint contract for Amadeus’ Altea reservations solution that will support the carrier’s international service.

The two companies said they will work closely together to implement Amadeus’ technology to allow Southwest to operate international flights in 2014. AirTran Airways, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Southwest Airlines, currently serves international destinations. As the AirTran international flights transition to Southwest, Amadeus will support Southwest’s international flying.
While the Amadeus IT Group agreement focuses on the international element of Southwest's reservation system, the contract also provides the option for Southwest to convert its domestic business to Amadeus in the future.
