Amadeus and United Nations collaborate for global tourism project

Amadeus has signed a major partnership with the United Nations to provide data and analysis of consumer trends for studies on global tourism.

The agreement will see the technology and GDS provider work with the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) on a number of initiatives by supplying destination and passenger origin information.

It is hoped the data will give UNWTO a better understanding of large scale passenger movements and their impact on destinations, especially in emerging markets.

The agreement was signed this week in Columbia, where UNWTO is holding its General Assembly, by Amadeus president and chief executive José Antonio Tazón and Francesco Frangialli, UNWTO general secretary.

In a statement, Amadeus and UNWTO said: “The UNWTO is in charge of collecting, analysing, publishing, standardising and improving tourism statistics and promoting their integration into the United Nations system.

“Its Secretariat for Affiliated Members supports all of the initiatives designed to strengthen the organisation’s work programme through its members, especially in the area of awareness of and access to up-do-date and reliable information on the evolution of tourism.”
