Amadeus is acquiring the airline tech unit of Optym, a technology company, for an undisclosed amount, the companies said Monday. The unit helps airlines with planning and scheduling their flight networks.
Optym, privately held and founded in 2000, aims to help airlines, such as EasyJet, Latam Airlines Group, and Southwest Airlines, trim their operational costs, boost profitability, and enhance service. Optym’s employees are mainly based at the headquarters in Gainesville, Fla.
Optym’s airline optimization services, with the 90 employees associated with it, will become part of Amadeus Sky Suite. Optym, which provides tech services for multiple verticals, previously told The Gainesville Sun that it had generated about $25 million in revenue in 2017.
