Amadeus Connects With Mid-East, Pacific Technology

On Monday, Amadeus and Destinations of the World announced a content-sharing agreement. Agents who use Amadeus' global distribution system now have access to DOTW rates and inventory for hotels and apartments in the Middle East, Indian Sub Continent, South East Asia and Australia. DOTW will connect to the CRS of hotels through the Amadeus system to allow for continuously updated rates and inventory, the companies said in a joint statement. Additionally, DOTW's online hotel reservation portal, "DOTWconnect" will be made available to Amadeus' agents, giving them access to inventory and rates as well as commission clearing and pre-payment. The interface modules between DOTWconnect and Amadeus will be developed in several stages, starting with the hotels, followed by car rental, air and then an all-inclusive dynamic package module. The development will commence mid-year with plans to complete the first phase before the end of 2007, the companies said. Visit [www.amadeus.net] or [www.dotw.com].
