Partnership agreed to improve air-rail ticketing

Posted on in News

TICKETING: AERTiCKET has agreed a partnership with Amadeus that gives it access to the Amadeus Rail Platform, allowing customers to book domestic and international rail travel alongside flights.

Using AERTiCKET’s Cockpit application, travel agents will be able to access services from nine European rail operators: ÖBB in Austria, Deutsche Bahn in Germany, Trenitalia and open access business NTV in Italy, SJ in Sweden, Renfe in Spain, Vy (formerly NSB) in Norway, SNCF in France and SBB in Switzerland.

AERTiCKET already had direct agreements with various rail operators, but the company was keen to have “an even wider and more comprehensive portfolio”.

Mirja Sickel, Amadeus’ Executive Vice President of Rail and Ground Travel, said that “more and more, travelling by train has become a preferred mode of transport for journeys up to 300km. We’re confident our partnership with AERTiCKET will give its customers the richest range of content, which will be pivotal while we navigate today’s challenging environment and prepare for the future.”
