Amadeus and Rail Europe have extended their
partnership into the Asian market with the rollout of the Rail
Europe Smart Tab on the Amadeus Selling Platform in India and
The partnership increases the reach of Rail Europe’s
European railway products and offers Amadeus travel agencies in
India and Japan improved access to pan-European rail content.
Amadeus will connect to Rail Europe’s content
through the Amadeus Selling Platform. Travel agents will be
able to book European rail segments to complement other
travel details such as airline, car or hotel, and therefore
provide a full itinerary for the traveller.
Pierre Stephane Austi, CEO of Rail Europe said,
“Partnering with Amadeus in Asia is an obvious choice for Rail
Europe. Tapping on the strength and breadth of the Amadeus network
in Asia, we will reach out to even more ticketing agents across
the region with instant access to inventories of a wide range of
rail products in Europe, including high-speed trains, that can be
sold in conjunction with an air ticket.”
The addition of Rail Europe’s extensive rail
content – high speed trains, scenic trains, night trains, rail
passes (including Eurail) – increases the travel agent’s
opportunity to generate additional revenue. Offering rail segments
also improves the quality of the travel agent’s service by helping
them deliver a complete seamless solution for the traveller.
addition to proposing flights in Europe, agents in Japan will be
able to book an onward journey with rail passes (popular among
leisure travellers), or convenient point-to-point travel
combinations by high speed rail.
Rail Europe Smart Tab on Amadeus is available to
all Amadeus clients in India and will be available in Japan in Q3
Representing more than 35 European railroads,
Rail Europe is the specialist in European Rail and provides the
booking process, from inventory to payment in multiple currencies
and forms of payment.
