Amadeus Lanka hosts a forum for Airline Partner
sync with its policy to ensure viable working partnership at local levels with
Airline partners, Amadeus Lanka organised a forum for all senior officials in
Colombo. The idea behind this airline forum was to provide airlines in Sri Lanka
an insight into our global partnerships with airlines and how we can work more
closely with them in the region.
Amadeus Global was represented
by Senior Directors from Bangkok as well as from the NMC headquarters in New Delhi.
Speaking on the occasion were Ankur Bhatia, Managing Director for Amadeus in the
subcontinent, Tim Russell, Director Markets, Asia Pacific, Louis Lee, Director,
Airline Business Group and Rajesh Suri, Senior Manager Airlines & Provider Support,
Issues that were brought to light were
Amadeus evolving as for tomorrow as an e-commerce player and technology service
provider with a host of tools and products for airlines in the offing. As much
as the issue of passive segments was discussed figures proved that as compared
to the other CRS's there has been a drop only in Amadeus' share by 3.50% in the
passive segments market share of Sri Lanka.
With the Amadeus
Asia Pacific headquarters firmly established in Bangkok there is a dedicated providers
team based there to work more closely with all airline offices in the region.
Even within the subcontinent, Amadeus has regional Airline co-ordinators who are
constantly working with airline reaffirming their commitment as "partners in progress."
