American and Expedia Reach Distribution Agreement

After months of acrimony, American Airlines and Expedia, Inc., have announced a memorandum of understanding that will allow the companies to resume doing business together, effective immediately.

Access to fares and schedule information of American Airlines and its subsidiary American Eagle has been restored for search and ticketing on Expedia and Hotwire sites worldwide initially via global distribution system (GDS) technology.

Expedia said it plans to access American Airlines’ fares, schedules and customized travel products and services via American’s direct connect link by using aggregation technology provided by a GDS. Additional terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
