Brazilian budget carrier Azul has finalised the adoption of the Amadeus Altéa reservation and ticketing platform.
The move comes as the airline looks to expand from domestic services to long-haul international routes such as Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Orlando.
The expansion needed a “flexible and modular” approach to modernising its IT systems, with the implementation of Altéa completed in three months.
This enables the airline to handle the increased complexity associated with international flights, which can now be viewed, searched and purchased through various sales channels.
John Dabkowski, airline commercial vice president at Amadeus, said: “Azul is a great example of a low-cost airline that is innovating with its approach to growth.
“We are increasingly seeing low-cost airlines adjusting their business models to enable continued growth and a flexible, function-rich IT system such as Altéa can support access to new markets, increase sales opportunities and facilitate industry partnerships.
“We look forward to further supporting Azul as it develops its international business.”
