Under this new agreement, Amadeus subscribers around the world are guaranteed continued access via the Amadeus System to United’s full range of content. The agreement also provides access and booking to the carrier’s ancillary offerings such as Economy Plus® extra-legroom premium seating, which will be available mid-year to travel agencies in North America with planning for global implementation underway.

As a global leader in airline merchandising, we have deployed ancillary servicesacross 74 markets worldwide, and 23 airlines currently distribute their services via the Amadeus System with over 50 more signed up to do so.

We're committed to establishing long-term content agreements like this to provide stability to our travel subscribers. Distribution of United’s content and ancillary services in North America and around the world is critical to our subscribers and their ability to serve passengers and we'll continue to work with United to maximize their business opportunities across our global network.
