Amadeus Ireland helps customers build for the future

Amadeus, a leading travel technology partner and transaction processor for the global travel and tourism industry announced a record six new customer signings including:

  • Bowe Travel (Thurles)
  • Manasik Travel (Dublin)
  • (Cork)
  • Mallow Travel (County Cork)
  • Newbridge Travel (County Kildare)
  • Premier Travel (Cork)

Thanks to its continued investment in IT and Research and Development, Amadeus is able to offer state-of-the-art sales and reservations solutions to equip its business and leisure travel agency partners with a constantly evolving technology toolkit. Whether it is personal service and expert advice, the best fares, or a combination of the two; Amadeus is enabling the continued success of a growing number of travel professionals throughout Ireland.

Yvonne Cronin, of said, “2010 has been a challenging year that has galvanised our business into ensuring we focus on delivering the best value and highest quality travel arrangements to meet the needs of today’s travellers. The right travel technology is crucial for providing up-to-date and accurate fares and availability information that our travel consultants and customers can rely on. After a thorough review of all the travel technology companies, we chose Amadeus because we believe it is uniquely positioned to underpin our business success.”

Michael Bowe, Owner and Manager of one of Ireland’s oldest and most respected travel agencies that has been serving customers since 1906 said, “You don’t succeed in business as long as we have without being able to adapt. And that’s what I like about Amadeus. It has adapted its solutions from point and click technology which it was first to introduce to Ireland, to the latest easy-to-use, web based booking solutions which require virtually no training. Together with its local team of technology experts, I’m confident that we’ve made the right choice in selecting Amadeus as our technology partner to help us to build upon our reputation for excellence.”

Volker Lorenz, General Manager, Amadeus Ireland concluded: “The signing of 6 new customers has been an excellent finish to what has been a difficult year for the industry. I applaud our new customers for taking the opportunity to review the service and product delivery of their existing travel technology supplier and compare it with what Amadeus has to offer – which is often a real eye-opener. I am confident that our new customers will quickly reap the benefits of Amadeus’ proven track record of delivering award-winning technology and service to Irish travel agents.”
