“Amadeus is in a unique position to provide this ready-made solution to all airlines, including our Altéa customers, deploying and operating the same software in distributed instances with native data synchronization”, explains Herve Couturier, Executive Vice President of Research & Development at Amadeus. “Importantly, this fully includes the application of the most advanced Origin-and-Destination revenue management logic”.
Amadeus Airline Cloud Availability was successfully piloted by Lufthansa in the second quarter of 2015, easily absorbing a 20 fold increase in transaction volumes. “We are thrilled with the initial results of the pilot, which has allowed us to be better prepared for the future”, says Roland Schuetz. “This solution combines our airline industry expertise along with Amadeus technology leadership to deploy a fully scalable remote instance of our content within the proven Google Cloud Platform. With the continuous proliferation of digital channels, this future-proof innovation has opened a new era in real time merchandising”.
Herve Couturier says that “the new Amadeus Airline Cloud Availability is built to face the new and future challenges of an industry revolutionized by digital shopping. We are excited to have successfully piloted this unique solution with the help of Lufthansa and the Google Cloud Platform offering worldwide deployment and reach”. Christophe Baroux adds that “Google Cloud Platform’s unique capabilities bring the best performance, flexibility and customer experience and we’re very happy to work with Amadeus and Lufthansa on such an innovative project”.
