Under a newly signed agreement between Amadeus and Turkish Airlines, travel agents worldwide will have access to the full range of Turkish Airlines’ fares, inventory and schedules through Amadeus. The three-year, full-content agreement offers Amadeus subscribers outside of Turkey the same level of fares, availability and functionality as the airline distributes through its own website.
“This new agreement boosts our relationship with Amadeus and allows Turkish Airlines to have competitive distribution in our international markets,” said Faruk Cizmecioglu, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Turkish Airlines. “Travel agents outside Turkey can now enjoy efficient access to the complete range of our offer through Amadeus for the next three years.”
“This is a critical step in Amadeus’ strategy to secure long-term efficient access to the content of key airlines worldwide,” said David Doctor, director, airline and travel agency for Amadeus. “Amadeus is a significant provider of distribution reach to Turkish Airlines and this contract lays the ground for a stable long-term cooperation with the carrier.”
With an annual passenger volume of 30 million, Turkish Airlines is one the fastest-growing airlines in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia. Amadeus is a chief distribution partner of the carrier.
This new contract is part of an increasing number of content agreements that Amadeus has recently signed with key airlines including, Aerolíneas Argentinas, TAP Portugal, Cathay Pacific and Alitalia.
