Air France-KLM Renews Amadeus Agreement and Launches New Economy Offer in Travel Agency Channel

Air France-KLM and Amadeus have renewed their content agreement guaranteeing access to the full range of fares and inventory relating to more than 74.8 million seats and 90,000 flights operated annually by Air France and KLM. The agreement also includes the content of regional airlines in the group.

Optional services such as Economy Comfort for KLM or Seat+ for Air France will be offered using the Amadeus Airline Ancillary Services solution (AAAS). Air France has also launched the ‘New Economy Offer’ available to 58 destinations on the short- and medium-haul network, allowing travel agents to give the customer an option that will allow choosing between the all-inclusive fare and a MiNi fare.
