Amadeus brings Betterez, Distribusion on board bus booking service
Bangkok, April 5, 2017
A new partnership between Amadeus and Distribusion has brought over 300 airport bus transfer and intercity bus operators in 2,500 destinations onto Amadeus’ travel seller network.
Initially, Amadeus travel sellers in central, eastern and southern Europe will be able to access Distributsion's bus content, but more across the world are expected to join soon.
Julian Hauck, founder and CEO of Distribusion, said: “Travel sellers are paying more attention to bus travel to continue enriching their offer to travellers, and have been longing to add this kind of content in a simple, standardised and effective way for some time."
Amadeus is further betting on the bus market with another partnership with Betterez, a reservations and ticketing management technology company working with motorcoach and tour operator businesses.
“Travelling by bus is an attractive choice for many, but could be for many more. Bus operators now have a complete package to unlock growth and make a significant footprint in the global travel industry,” commented Antoine de Kerviler, head of rail and ground travel at Amadeus.
