Korea’s travel information system provider Topas is to migrate to the Amadeus system in 2014.
This comes as Korean Air and Amadeus signed a full content agreement giving agents access to the carrier’s fares and inventory.
The deal strengthens a long-standing relationship that expands also to the airline IT.
The airline plans to migrate to the full Amadeus Altea Suite, including reservation, inventory and departure control in 2014 and, separately, the Topas migration.
Amadeus distribution senior vice president Holger Taubmann said: “This is an important step in our strategy to secure sustainable and long-term content agreements with leading airlines worldwide.
“This agreement recognises the crucial role that travel agency distribution plays and the stability that long term content agreements bring to airline and travel agency parties alike.”
Korean Air passenger business senior vice president Kee Hong Woo said: “With this new agreement, we ensure that travel agents both in Korea and in our international markets will be provided with the highest level of access to Korean Air’s full range of content and services.”
