Amadeus Technology to Upgrade Philippine Airlines’ Systems

Philippine Airlines has signed an agreement with Amadeus to deliver an extensive transformation of the airline’s core technology systems.

Philippine Airlines will adopt the full Amadeus Altéa Suite, a complete Passenger Service System that aims to streamline and improve all core passenger processes for PAL, including reservation, inventory, departure control, and flight management.

 The transformation means Philippine Airlines customers will enjoy a smoother experience, from booking to boarding.

Jaime J. Bautista, President and COO of Philippine Airlines, said, “Philippine Airlines should offer a passenger experience that is truly representative of the Philippines and a source of pride for our people. We are expanding and modernizing our fleet, opening new routes, but most importantly, sharpening our customer service excellence. We need technology that will capably support our ambitions, but also a partner that shares our vision. Accordingly, after a rigorous evaluation process, we have chosen to partner with Amadeus, their technology and their people.”

The Amadeus Altéa Suite is a next-generation airline IT system that, once implemented, will help PAL enhance customer experience by delivering more consistent and personalized customer service, develop new revenue streams, and improve operational efficiency.

 Tangible benefits include faster and simpler check-in for travelers, the ability to re-accommodate disrupted passengers in a matter of seconds, improved on-time performance, and consistent, automatic application of customer preferences at every touch point.

Adopting Altéa will also support Philippine Airlines’ ambitions to join an airline alliance. More than two-thirds of Star Alliance airlines, three-quarters of oneworld airlines and half of Skyteam airlines use Altéa.

As a community platform for airlines, Altéa enables better integration between partner airlines, with real-time sharing of availability, fares, customer and booking information to deliver a harmonized customer experience across the alliance.

Cyril Tetaz, Executive Vice President, Airlines, Amadeus Asia Pacific, said, “It’s clear that Philippine Airlines’ business strategy is en route to further propel it into the future of travel, where its customers need it to be, and we’re extremely proud to walk that path with the airline. We are committed to Philippine Airlines’ success in the long-term, and look forward to delivering continual collaboration to ensure today’s agreement matches the expectations of its travelers. We warmly welcome Philippine Airlines to the Amadeus Altéa community, where it joins leading airlines around the world which similarly value the flexibility and customer centricity brought to them by Amadeus’ technology.”
