Amadeus, a global leader in technology and distribution solutions for the travel and tourism industry, has added 5,000 more hotel properties to its distribution system since the last update in October 2006, providing travel agents with access to 75,000 properties. 

Asia Pacific is following the global trend with steady growth in the number of hotels available for booking through Amadeus. This growth is spurred by a boom in tourism in the region, with Pacific Asia Travel Association estimating revenue of US $110 billion by 2009.

Charles P Carneiro, head – marketing and communications, Indian Subcontinent said, “Amadeus identifies the need of the traveller for the convenience of a streamline travel experience. By providing access to a large number hotels, Amadeus ensures that travel agents in India have an easier way to book hotels around the globe, enabling them to help their customers plan their travel arrangements seamlessly and comprehensively.”

Amadeus is also working on a number of other initiatives to boost the use of its distribution system for booking hotels. A best available rate program gives travel agencies the confidence that Amadeus’ rates are at least as competitive as other distribution channels. And Amadeus recently launched a pilot of its Worldwide Commission Manager. This system tracks all the commissions that are due by participating hotels to travel agents. By providing this information on single-view screens, it allows travel agencies to more efficiently collect their commissions, therefore encouraging them to make more bookings with participating hotel chains.
