Mahatma Gandhi said, “The future depends on what we do in the present.” If this old adage holds true, then the work done by the Global Travel and Tourism Partnership (GTTP) today is creating a bright future indeed.



Amadeus is a proud Global Partner of the GTTP global educational program. This program has life-changing results for students in underserved communities and helps shape the future of the travel industry through skills training and talent development.

It is no small feat that over the course of the foundation’s 20 years it has impacted the lives of more than 2 million high school and vocational college students, while educating them about travel, tourism and hospitality careers as well as sustainability issues.

Amadeus hosting student presentations

Most recently, Amadeus hosted aGTTP event in France, which brought together 22 students who were selected to present their research findings on ‘Sustainable Adventure Tourism”.

Working with organisations like the GTTP is an important part of our corporate social responsibility programme. We wish the GTTP another 20 years of success in creating a better and brighter future for young people around the world.
