Amadeus and Airport Transport Service Co., Ltd. (Airport Limousine), a provider of airport shuttle services between Narita Airport and the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, have signed a global technology and distribution partnership for a limousine bus ticket booking solution.

As a result of the partnership, more than 100,000 travel agencies worldwide will be able to offer customers the option of pre-booking Airport Transport Service tickets between Narita Airport and the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, at the point when they make flight and accommodation bookings on the Amadeus GDS.

Amadeus sources revealed that between 40 to 80% of inbound travellers are unaware of transport choices to reach Central Tokyo until they arrive at Narita Airport. With this new Amadeus partnership, Airport Transport Service will have access to more than 100,000 new sales channels worldwide.

Travel agencies are also able to enhance their relationship with their Tokyo-bound customers by offering convenient bus tickets to transport them from Narita Airport to a wide variety of destinations in downtown Toyko, booked and paid for before they even leave home. This saves travellers the trouble of last-minute enquiries or queueing for tickets.

“Airport Limousine operates the most frequent shuttle service from Narita Airport to major hotels in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, offering visitors a direct, hassle-free ride to their destination,” said Mitsuo Suzuki, President, Airport Transport Service Co., Ltd. “This new partnership with Amadeus means that we will be able to expand our business by significantly increasing global points-of-sale for Airport Limousine tickets. We look forward to working with Amadeus as we continue to grow our business in Japan.”
