Travel management company Key Travel has renewed a technology deal with Amadeus as part of expansion plans.
The business travel firm, which specialises in the education, humanitarian and faith sectors, plans future growth in the UK, North America and the EU markets.
The new agreement continues through to 2022.
New Key Travel chief executive Saad Hammad, former boss of Flybe, said: “Over the last few years, Key Travel has worked hand in hand with the team at Amadeus to bring new and innovative solutions to our sector.
“We were the first travel management company to bring to market a number of new Amadeus tools and applications, such as multi-functional risk management support which helps our customers deliver on their duty-of-care for their employees.
“In renewing our successful long-term relationship with Amadeus, we are confident that Key Travel is well positioned for the future as we scale geographically and accelerate our sales development.”
Amadeus UK and Ireland managing director, Champa Magesh, said: “We are delighted to be extending our decade-long partnership with Key Travel across international markets, particularly in the USA where we are both experiencing rapid growth.
“We have agreed a roadmap that is designed to meet the needs of Key Travel’s specialist customers by providing the flexibility and dynamism they require in a changing market.”
She added: “The best part of Amadeus’ 30 years of innovation in travel technology is working with TMCs that are receptive to new ideas and the technologies that bring them to life.
“That’s why we are genuinely excited about Key Travel’s future plans and we are thrilled to be playing an integral part in the company’s ongoing success story.”
