Travel technology company Amadeus has announced new deals with its existing partners, Travix and Heycars, which sees the company strengthening these existing relationships through new customer offerings.
Travix, an online global travel company, is now to make Amadeus its global distribution partner, which will provide Travix with greater access to the breadth of content offered by the Amadeus Travel Platform and, in turn, Amadeus with an advanced reach of its services.
At the same time, Chinese startup Heycars, which emerged from the Amadeus Next Start-Up programme, is to integrate into Amadeus Transfers and part of the Amadeus Transfers platform. Heycars is available in 83 countries, providing chauffeured vehicles that can be booked in advance. It will now have access to Amadeus’ global travel agency network.
Collaborating with new innovative startups and other well-established businesses is an obvious step for any company looking to get ahead of the competition. It comes as no surprise that these companies have come together, especially considering that Amadeus recently reported positive growth in the first quarter of 2019 and achieved certification on the ONE Order standard as capable Order Management System by the International Air Transport Association.
