Published: 14 Apr 2008: Amadeus has created a new unit to provide tools for international leisure distribution.

The unit is called TravelTainment – The Amadeus Leisure Group and brings together three Amadeus leisure technology businesses: TravelTainment, Amadeus Tours, and the product management and development for TOMA, a tour package distribution solution.

The unit will initially focus on Amadeus´ existing market portfolios in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Holland, Belgium, Poland and the UK and other markets beyond Europe such as North America and Canada.

"We have brought together our technology and international leisure expertise into one organisation and are now in a unique position to meet our customers needs. We can help them as they face the emerging challenges of selling complex leisure products in the travel agency front office and over the Internet," said Ian Wheeler, VP, Marketing, Amadeus,

Wheeler said, "The unique technology and data developed and aggregated by TravelTainment, The Amadeus Leisure Group, is the logical organisational base for this new approach to the market."

The company stated that the combined leisure offering is the only multi-market, multi-channel, community distribution system for selling leisure content of all type, including alternative packages, hotels, charters, Low Cost options and cruises.

Ralf Usbeck continues as CEO, TravelTainment – The Amadeus Leisure Group, and takes on new responsibilities for Amadeus´ global leisure strategy.

Michael Kalt will be Managing Director, responsible for the Central IT and Hosting organisation and Germany; Andy Owen-Jones is Managing Director responsible for International Content and Connectivity, Sales and Operations. Both report to the CEO of TravelTainment – The Amadeus Leisure Group.
