Building on its longstanding partnership, the newly expanded agreement will support Group’s global growth strategies for its OTA and Trip.Biz TMC (Travel Management Company) in two key opportunities.

Firstly, continuing as the preferred GDS (Global Distribution System) hotel content provider for Trip.Biz, Amadeus will continue to work closely with and support Trip.Biz as it implements its global growth strategy. Additionally, Group has signed a new agreement with Amadeus to provide its customers with access to content options from Amadeus Value Hotels (AVH) on the Group platform.

Enabling access to AVH content for Group customers will provide access to more than 500,000 properties globally, including directly sourced content by Amadeus.

Ray Chen, CEO of Accommodations Business, Group said: “Amadeus has been and will continue to be a wonderful technology partner for Group. We are proud to be expanding our relationship with Amadeus to enhance our offerings beyond air and meet our long-term business goals.”

Joerg Schuler, Executive Vice President, Hospitality Media & Distribution, Amadeus said: “We are excited to work with one of the top online travel providers and help them grow through this important collaboration. Not only will these agreements allow Group to provide an even better booking experience for its customers, but they will strengthen Amadeus’ position as a comprehensive provider of solutions in the market. We look forward to a bright future with this expanding travel services company.”
