Taiwanese carrier China Airlines is to offer travel agents the same rates as those available online in a distribution deal with Amadeus.
The long-term content agreement covers China Airlines and regional subsidiary Mandarin Airlines.
Outside Asia, the carriers have increased their content guarantee to Amadeus to the same fares, availability and functionality as both airlines distribute through their own websites, call centres and other travel agency access channels.
Senior vice president James Yu said: “Travel agencies are a key element of our sales strategy.
“It is extremely important for us to provide the travel agency channel with access to the full range of fares, schedules and inventory from both China Airlines and Mandarin Airlines. This agreement reflects our commitment to this very important distribution channel.”
Amadeus distribution senior vice president Holger Taubmann said the deal ensures subscribers have access to the “most comprehensive range” of flight options from the two airlines.
“This is also an important step within Amadeus strategy to secure long term content agreements with leading airlines in Asia,” he added.
