Austrian Airlines has adopted Amadeus Web Services which provide online access to the complete range of Amadeus applications. (3/1/2007)
According to Amadeus, by using its Web Services, Austrian Airlines is able to build and update travel booking applications without any service disruption. The new solution provides greater flexibility and functionality at the same time as reducing costs.
Konstantin Kasapis, manager interactive sales, Austrian Airlines said the airline adopted Amadeus Web Services because of the need to constantly change, customise and update.
“It leaves us to focus on how to take advantage of Web 2.0 and other innovations,” said Kasapis.
Taking this service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach means that Austrian Airlines has a single, secure point of access to connect to all Amadeus content without any direct interference with existing systems. In addition, as it makes it quick and easy to replace old applications, Austrian Airlines will enjoy complete flexibility and freedom to exploit the best available technology.
Amadeus Web Services is based on open standards, it is wholly language and platform neutral, and fully Web 2.0 compliant.
