Amadeus said that the deal marks a “milestone” for the company, with SpiceJet becoming “the first of a number of Indian LCCs” whose content will be made available through AeTM.
Users of AeTM in India will be able to book negotiated fares and ancillary services such as in-flight meals, and will be offered flexible account payment options rather than having to input credit card details in every traveller’s profile or at the end of every booking.
“Corporate travel is on the rise in India with business travel expected to grow by 10% this year. We are delighted to work with industry leaders like Amadeus, to ensure our fares are available to corporations in India with the potential to reach over 6,000 corporations worldwide,” said Neil Mills, CEO of SpiceJet.
Bruno des Fontaines, Amadeus’ Vice President of Customer Solutions in Asia Pacific added; “This announcement marks a major step forward for Amadeus in growing our AeTM business in India. With the expected growth in corporate travel, especially through low cost travel options in India, offering SpiceJet content to our customers in India is well timed.”
