Expedia will be able to offer air, car, rail, cruise and hotels through the Amadeus global distribution system as part of a new long-term global deal.
The agreement adds Orbitz Worldwide in addition to the Expedia, Hotwire, Travelocity, Wotif Group, Expedia Affiliate Network and Egencia brands covered by a previous pact with Amadeus.
The new deal builds on an established upgrade options partnership and ensures “continued innovation” for the more than 8.6 billion flight searches Expedia customers conduct every year.
Expedia offers upgrade options for multiple carriers in North America and Europe as well as pre-paid, checked baggage offerings on certain sites around the world.
The OTA’s global tour and transport senior vice president, Greg Schulze, said: “Expedia’s commitment is to deliver an exceptional air shopping and booking experience by making it easy for travelers to find exactly what they want.
“Amadeus helps Expedia to be the very best place to shop for flights.”
Amadeus distribution senior vice president, Holger Taubmann, added: “Expedia is a major online travel player. We are excited to expand our partnership and to continue working together to power innovative travel experiences to delight consumers worldwide.”
