China-based travel e-commerce aggregator Shijie99 will use Amadeus to power its international growth.
The multi-year agreement includes the provision of extensive air content via Amadeus’s advanced Master Pricer search technology for points-of-sale outside mainland China.
Pre-paid and post-paid hotel and car rental, as well as rail content, will be available to customers in all markets, including China.
The agreement will enable Shijie99 to expand and diversify its product portfolio by adopting the same technology used by leading global online travel agents.

“As we look to drive similar success outside of China, collaboration with a global leader like Amadeus is critical.
“Our partnership means that travellers will have access to the best global content via the best search technology, meeting the needs of travellers today and into the future.”
Amadeus head of leisure online and travel media, Sebastien Gibergues, said: “Shijie99 is a powerhouse in China’s expanding travel industry, delivering content to the leading travel players.
“I have no doubt that Amadeus’ leading technology and comprehensive global content will support Shijie99 in their international expansion.
