Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 19 September 2008

Amadeus has launched the latest version of its corporate self-booking tool, Amadeus e-Travel Management (v11.2), which includes an unused ticket trader feature and extended carrier content from two key Brazilian airlines, Gol, a low cost carrier, and TAM.

The new unused ticket trader which will initially be made available in the US fully automates the entire process of managing unused air tickets from 26 airlines. This will bring significant cost savings for corporations and productivity efficiencies for travel management companies by making refunding bookings easier and quicker.

The feature allows travellers to easily submit any previously unused domestic and international tickets towards payment of a new reservation and automatically calculates the fare for the new booking, including all applicable refunds, charges and taxes.

By removing the time consuming processes required to manually change tickets, travel management companies should see a considerable reduction in the time needed to re-book a ticket. By cutting out up to 13 steps that a manual ticket exchange process would call for, the travel agent will just need to simply reissue the new ticket.

Amadeus e-Travel Management v11.2 also brings the addition of two major airlines in Brazil Gol and TAM which account for an important share of business travel in the country and in the Latin American region. The availability of low cost carrier Gol and TAM content through the online booking tool will also help corporations expand their global travel programmes and attain successful online booking adoption rates in the region.

Given the current economic scenario the unused ticket trader in version 11.2 will offer some much-needed cost efficiencies to corporations, said Frank Palapies, Amadeus Head of Global Commercial Operations. In addition, Amadeus has made the most of its global presence by tapping into its local development centres to deliver direct benefits to corporations travel departments worldwide. With this new version, companies with operations in Brazil and Latin America will now have access to essential local air content through Amadeus e-Travel Management.
