Greater Bay Airlines inks Amadeus distribution agreement

Thursday, Jan 06, 2022 0

New Hong Kong based carrier Greater Bay Airlines has signed an agreement with Amadeus to make its schedules and fares available to travel agencies worldwide via the Amadeus Travel Platform.

It will go live in the first quarter of 2022.

Flights will commence in the same quarter, subject to regulatory approvals.

Greater Bay Airlines obtained its AOC (Air Operator’s Certificate) in October 2021.

Amadeus-connected travel sellers — including travel management companies, corporations, tour operators, retail travel agencies, online travel agencies, and metasearch — will be able to search, book and manage reservations on Greater Bay Airlines.

Through the Amadeus Travel Platform, they will gain access to the airline’s flight schedules, load changes, seat maps, ancillary services and fare families as well as real-time flight updates.

Algernon Yau, Chief Executive Officer, Greater Bay Airlines, said: "We are pleased to appoint Amadeus as one of our service providers for Global Distribution System. Amadeus will support our rapid implementation requirements and the growth of our airline."

The airline has applied for the rights to operate to 104 destinations across the region, including the Chinese Mainland, North and Southeast Asia.

The carrier has already leased three Boeing 737-800 aircraft and plans to grow its fleet to 30 aircraft over the next five years.
