As consumer and business travel interest continue to ramp up, travelers will seek out quick and easy ways to compare all of their travel options in one place, making access to fast, high quality search results more important than ever. That’s why today, KAYAK and Amadeus are renewing and expanding their IT agreement, continuing the companies’ long-standing partnership and expanding its use of the Amadeus MetaConnect suite.

Offering a suite of travel solutions that delivers instant search results, Amadeus flight search technology will continue to power KAYAK’s ability to process billions of queries across its platforms every year making it easier to discover and compare low prices and flexible fares in one quick search.   

In addition to the companies working together to deliver quick and easy flight comparison shopping, the renewed partnership accelerates the adoption of Amadeus’ MetaConnect suite. With Amadeus MetaConnect, KAYAK also can create a streamlined search and assisted-booking flow for a top-quality user experience with higher conversion rates for airline.com partners. 

“Through our expanded agreement with Amadeus, we can continue innovating and testing new features without it impacting our users or our airline partners for an overall improved flight search experience,” said Ko Baryiames, KAYAK’s Chief Technology Officer. “As we head into the busy holiday travel season, traveler confidence is critical. Our goal is to continue delivering an excellent online shopping experience to our users by making the search and booking experience as easy as possible.”
