We’re creating a more connected travel industry, underpinned by sustainability and long-term investor relations.
We chatted with Managing Director of Amadeus UK and Ireland Diane Bouzebiba at the recently held Amadeus Rail Forum to find out what she thinks about the bourgeoning rail industry.
On rail in the UK – Diane made her feelings clear:
“Amadeus is a catalyst for transforming this industry and obviously I think – certainly from the UK perspective – there’s a little bit of unfinished business in the rail area that I want to make sure we’re addressing…”
When asked specifically about industry opportunity, Diane commented:
“…in the UK I’ve had personal experience of travelling on the train and I know that the trains are pretty full all the time – so linking these trains into a European transport system is obviously important for me. But I think in a wider sense what Amadeus is bringing to this debate – and for our UK customers – is intermodal travel giving choice – joining up the dots in terms of transport…”
