Amadeus and Flybe sign agreement

A deal has been signed between global distribution system giant Amadeus and budget airline Flybe.

A deal has been signed between global distribution system (GDS) giant Amadeus and budget airline Flybe.

Through the agreement Amadeus will provide travel agents across the world with access to Flybe’s full fare data – serving as an extension of a previous deal which exempted information on Flybe’s lowest air fares.

Participating agents will now be able to take advantage of full access to the Exeter-based carrier’s ample European flights, as well as around the UK – including a new route between Gatwick and Aberdeen.

The expanding airline has also signed a landmark franchise agreement with Scottish carrier Loganair, through which two million seats for flights with Flybe flight numbers will go on sale in June 2008 – an agreement that sees Loganair flights pass from British Airways to Flybe.

Looking forward to the flight search boost granted by further partnership with Amadeus, Stephen Hobday, Flybe head of sales, said: "We have been bookable through Amadeus for many years, and are looking forward to seeing the results of this extended offering, particularly at such an exciting time for the airline as we integrate BA Connect and Loganair routes into our existing network."
