Air France-KLM and Amadeus Sign Agreement

air franceAir France-KLM and Amadeus report renewal of their content agreement. Travel agencies worldwide will continue to have guaranteed access to the full range of fares and inventory relating to more than 74.8 million seats and 90,000 flights operated annually by Air France and KLM through the Amadeus system. The agreement also includes the content of regional airlines in the group.

Travel agents will continue to offer optional services to their customers such as Economy Comfort for KLM or Seat + for Air France using the Amadeus Airline Ancillary Services solution (AAAS). The solution enables airlines to merchandize their ancillary services. 

Air France has launched the ‘New Economy Offer’ available to 58 destinations on the short and medium-haul network, allowing travel agents to give customers an option that will allow choosing between the all-inclusive fare and a MiNi fare.

Holger Taubmann, senior vice president, distribution, Amadeus said: “Given the important role which travel agency distribution plays, long-term content agreements like this provide stability to both airlines and travel agencies alike." Today 80 percent of Amadeus bookings worldwide are made on airlines with which Amadeus has a content agreement.
