Amadeus to implement Altéa Suite for Air Canada
Amadeus today announces a partnership with Air Canada, to implement the Amadeus Altéa Suite in addition to a renewed distribution agreement.
Air Canada has signed for the full Amadeus Altéa Suite passenger service system (PSS) including reservations, inventory, and departure control solutions. The Altéa Suite will help Air Canada achieve closer integration with its codeshare partners and within the Star Alliance – more than two thirds of which are also Altéa carriers.
In addition to these solutions, the carrier will implement a range of other Amadeus IT solutions such as Anytime Merchandising, Customer Experience Management, Payments, Revenue Integrity, Group Management and Passenger Recovery.
At the same time, the renewed multi-year distribution agreement supports Air Canada’s focus on delivering a consistent brand and customer experience across channels, a key aspect of its international growth.
Future end-to-end connectivity will also enable integration of the airline’s Corporate Rewards, Flight Pass and dynamic pricing offers.
“This new agreement with Amadeus marks the evolution of what has been a long, successful and strategic partnership.
We see the benefits of having a fully integrated IT and distribution strategy which brings the strongest distribution capabilities as well as next-generation airline IT services to our customers worldwide,” said Lucie Guillemette, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Air Canada.
