Senior Vice President, Airlines, Amadeus IT Group
We are extremely pleased to have signed this important agreement with SWISS, and we look forward to supporting the airline enhance its services and operations by implementing the Altéa Suite. Indeed, at Amadeus we share SWISS’ total commitment to product and service quality. At the same time, the agreement further strengthens Amadeus’ position as the global market leader in Passenger Service Systems.
Amadeus has added Swiss International Air Lines to a growing roster of airlines to adopt the core modules of the Amadeus Altéa Suite. This follows on from our recent agreement with Southwest Airlines to become their single reservation solution.
I worked closely with the Swiss International Air Lines senior executives and I am honoured by the trust they have placed in us.
Harry Hohmeister, CEO, Swiss International Air Lines, said in our announcement:
We selected Amadeus’ Altéa Suite following an extensive and detailed evaluation of PSS solutions currently available on the market. Altéa is the ideal choice for our needs, particularly as it has already been implemented by many of our partners. Moreover, Amadeus’ state-of-the art technology will empower us to provide an even more streamlined, effective service to our customers, enhancing the overall passenger experience within the LH Group, something we have long been committed to.
Our goal is to help our customers provide innovative, market-leading products and services which match the evolving needs of the 21st Century traveller – to connect, serve and manage effectively the entire passenger experience from beginning to end.
SWISS’ migration to the Altéa Reservation and Inventory modules is scheduled for the beginning of 2016, with migration to Departure Control to follow in mid-2016.
