Travix jumps enthusiastically into a global distribution partnership with Amadeus

Francesca Benati

Senior VP Online Travel Channels, WEMEA and Managing Director for Italy, Amadeus

We’ve worked closely with Travix, a global online travel company, for many years and now we’re taking a big leap forward together as Amadeus becomes its global distribution provider.

So, what are the benefits for Travix of deciding to go with Amadeus?

Travix will now have greater access to the unmatched content on offer through the Amadeus Travel Platform . Our platform employs Artificial Intelligence to facilitate the customization of content on an integrated platform. Thanks to this wealth of rich content, Travix will be able to deliver more personalized and differentiated travel experiences to its travelers.   

How else are Amadeus and Travix making bold strides in the travel space?

Amadeus and Travix are doing more than making bold strides, we’re successfully achieving important milestones to drive NDC forward. We’re excited to announce that Travix customers have successfully been making live bookings through Amadeus’ NDC-enabled Web Services solution  since November 2018 in Austria, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

John Mangelaars, CEO, Travix has previously highlighted how important it is to provide a “single end-to-end process for booking and servicing NDC and non-NDC content”. The processing of live NDC bookings in the NDC-enabled Web Services solution shows both Amadeus and Travix’s commitment to achieving Mr. Mangelaars vision.

What value does Amadeus Web Services bring to online travel companies like Travix?

Amadeus’ NDC-enabled Web Services solution , backed by the Amadeus Travel Platform, showcases aggregated content coming from different sources including EDIFACT, NDC, and other APIs. The result is that when an online travel company like Travix runs a search, the content is shown side by side, in the one screen, making it easy to compare different offers and better serve its travelers.

What’s next for Amadeus and Travix?

We have an exciting journey ahead. Amadeus and Travix are collaborating with other industry players in our NDC [X] program  to define the servicing requirements that an agency has once the booking has been made. These servicing requirements could range from making changes to the booking or adding ancillary services such as extra luggage. 

The announcement of Travix processing live NDC bookings is a landmark moment in the NDC journey  as Amadeus plans to roll-out more NDC-enabled solutions throughout the year.
