Amadeus is celebrating its tenth year of operations in Japan with the signing of a new partnership agreement with JTB Corporate Solutions, a solution provider company which is wholly owned by Japans largest travel agency, JTB.

Businesses in Japan which were previously only able to book domestic travel with JTBs existing Js NAVI system, will now also be able to book international travel thanks to the partnership, which will see the Amadeus e-Travel Management online solution integrate seamlessly with Js NAVI..

David Brett, President of Amadeus Asia Pacific, said, Amadeus Japan has achieved amazing results over the past ten years. Japan has emerged as a very successful growth market for Amadeus, and I am confident we will continue this strong performance over the next ten years as well. We have established partnerships with many of the most well-respected names in the Japanese travel industry, and JTB is already our largest customer for travel reservations in Japan. We are very proud to welcome JTB Corporate Solutions as our newest partner.

Since it commenced operations in 1998, Amadeus Japan has grown to become one of the leading global GDS-based airline ticket reservation companies, and a growing provider of IT solutions for other sectors of the travel industry including hotels and online travel agents.

Miho Ohtake, General Manager for Amadeus Japan, has observed that changing trends in the Japanese market over the past ten years have driven the need for new technologies. Efficient and secure travel reservation and IT systems are no longer needed only by airlines, but we have also seen growing demand from hotels, trains, ferries, rental car companies and travel insurers, said Ohtake.

As part of ongoing efforts to provide cutting-edge technologies for the hotel industry, Amadeus has made a significant investment to enhance the hotel reservation features of its Amadeus Selling Platform which allows travel professionals to manage all air and other travel content including pre and post-sale activities with a single-screen interface. This has resulted in a 300% increase in the number of hotel reservations enabled by Amadeus in Japan in 2007, compared with 2006.

Amadeus is also focusing efforts to help train students the travel industry personnel of the future by deploying the Amadeus Selling  Platform at Trajal Hospitality Tourism College in Osaka this summer. The move marks Amadeus Japans first venture into training for advanced travel reservation platforms.
