Amadeus has launched new generation IT solutions for filing private fares in the distribution system.
Fares can now be filed through the FareXpert Filing Platform and the XML Fare Data Interface. The new technology will help airlines, consolidators and travel agencies to implement the results of negotiations between airlines and their distribution partners over fares, said an official spokesman with the global leader in technology and distribution solutions for the travel and tourism industry.
“Bilateral agreements between airlines, online travel agencies and consolidators are likely to play an ever-greater role in the travel distribution value chain as competition increases.
The fast and accurate loading of fares is growing in the list of priorities for all these companies,” said director of operations for expedia in Asia Pacific Georg Ruebensal.
Negotiated - or private - fares filed via Amadeus fare filing solutions account for roughly 40 million Amadeus book-ings each year. Amadeus FareXpert's user-friendly graphical user interface offers the power to control private fare distribution in local markets more accurately and enables organisations buying or selling travel to react instantly to market changes in a price-sensitive environment.
