Amadeus has unveiled a new solution designed to offer a greater range of taxi and airport transfer options.
Launched in partnership with CabForce and initially rolled out by Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), the Amadeus Taxi & Transfer solution offers airlines the chance to integrate a taxi and transfer services into their website.
Cabforce’s services are already available for travel agents via the Amadeus Selling Platform, but this partnership marks the first time that a taxi and transfer solution has been integrated into an airline’s booking site.
Cabforce’s taxi content is available in six continents, and Amadeus said it would be working with Cabforce to add more destinations to the list in future.
“We have been working hard to add a new cross-sell ancillary service to our portfolio in response to the demands of our airline customers and we are glad to launch our Amadeus Taxi & Transfer solution with two excellent pilot partners,” said Peter Altmann, head of Amadeus Cars & Transfers.
“This solution completes our door-to-door offering, establishing us as the reliable IT partner in taxi-transfer solutions for the sector. We look forward to improving the solution by adding new airline and taxi-transfer partners in the near future and making the content available in all Amadeus channels.”
The Amadeus Taxi & Transfer offer is currently bookable through the SAS website and Amadeus said it has a pipeline of other airlines preparing to implement the solution.
