Online travel search company Kayak is to expand the use of Amadeus’s airline fare and availability technology.
This comes as part of a new multi-year deal designed to provide the most comprehensive and accurate flight search results for the US company’s global websites and mobile applications.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Amadeus has provided Kayak with advanced global search capabilities based on its Meta Pricer platform for six years. The solution for travel metasearch companies enables them to quickly retrieve and return airline fares and availabilities to their users, while also reducing both travel search company and airline website operation costs.
Chief commercial officer Keith Melnick said: “Amadeus has been a valued partner of ours since 2006 and has helped Kayak achieve greater efficiencies with our global search services by utilizing Amadeus’s innovative Meta Pricer platform.
“We are pleased to be expanding our relationship and look forward to continued collaboration with the Amadeus team.”
Amadeus worldwide distribution senior vice president Holger Taubmann said: “Our partnership over the years with Kayak, in addition to our extended agreement today, showcases further evidence of Amadeus’s ongoing, significant role at the core of technology and travel, specifically for metasearch and online travel.
“We have focused heavily on innovation to bring value to Kayak and its online customers on a daily basis, and we look forward to the next stage of expanded relationship.”
