The strong operating performance in Distribution, Airline IT and new businesses, as well as a Navitaire consolidation effect contributed to this positive evolution.
Travel agency air bookings grew across all regions, with Asia Pacific and Latin America registering the higher growth levels at 11.6 percent and 11.5 percent respectively.
Commenting on the success, Luis Maroto, CEO, Amadeus, revealed, “We had important developments in our Airline IT segment. We signed significant deals with leading airlines such as Air Canada, which further strengthens our presence in North America following the Southwest Airlines’ domestic flights migration in May. In our distribution segment, our bookings continued outperforming the industry thanks to enhancements in our competitive position.”
