Bart Tompkins, Managing Director for Amadeus China said that technology would be crucial to unlocking the enormous potential of the Chinese travel industry.
“There is no doubt that innovative technology use by all players in the travel chain (including travel agencies, airlines and airports in China) will ensure more efficient management of greater passenger volumes without increasing costs.”
