QF Amadeus hackathon win

Travel Daily - - News -

A TEAM of Qan­tas tech­nol­ogy ex­perts have taken out the grand prize in the in­au­gu­ral Amadeus “Air­lines Dig­i­tal Ex­pe­ri­ence Hackathon” in Nice, France.

The three-day event at­tracted air­line de­vel­op­ers from across the globe, com­pet­ing with each other to de­liver the “most in­no­va­tive e-com­merce ex­pe­ri­ence” us­ing Amadeus tech­nol­ogy.

The Qan­tas group de­vel­oped an “in­tel­li­gence plat­form” called The

Wal­laby which in­cluded a mo­bile web ap­pli­ca­tion able to an­tic­i­pate fu­ture travel and pre-de­ter­mine a com­plete itin­er­ary.

The sys­tem showed how Amadeus tech could in­te­grate with a chat­bot/per­sonal as­sis­tant via the Ama­zon Alexa gad­get, with The Wal­laby act­ing as a hub which un­der­stood a client’s travel pat­terns and also recog­nised when it was ap­pro­pri­ate to en­gage them with a flight of­fer and the best chan­nel to use.
