Amadeus North America announced the arrival of Amadeus All Fares, a new addition to the Amadeus Selling Platform for travel agencies. The new platform combines GDS and non-GDS fare content along with powerful low fare search capabilities, all in one comprehensive graphical display. The net result will be productivity gains when agents seek ideal fare and flight options, Amadeus says.
Amadeus Selling Platform subscribers in the U.S. and Canada will be eligible to try out Amadeus All Fares during a free three-month trial period March 1st through May 30th, 2008.
Amadeus All Fares leverages the low-fare search engine technology of Amadeus Master Pricer. Using Amadeus Master Pricer, for the first time travel agents will have the ability to search and evaluate up to 200 fares instantaneously on one screen in order to determine the best flight schedule and price options for their clients - all seamlessly integrated into the Amadeus passenger name record (PNR).
Owen Wild, director of marketing, Amadeus North America, said that Amadeus is the first distribution provider to bring this level of integrated search and display functionality right to the agent's desktop to help them increase productivity and grow their businesses.
Accessible via a "Smart Tab" on the Amadeus Selling Platform (http://www.amadeus.com/us/x60181.html), Amadeus All Fares using Amadeus Master Pricer pulls flights and fares from GDS fare content, non-GDS content from select airline web sites and consolidator fares from Amadeus' Consolidator Shopper product, all into a single graphical display. Additionally, the product includes a calendar view for agents to evaluate various travel dates for customers who have flexible travel schedules. Other search-by options include GDS published fares; agency contract fares; select non-GDS airline webfares; consolidator fares; and alternate airports and cabin type.
