South African low-cost carrier (LCC) Mango and Amadeus signed a content agreement last month that brings the carrier’s content, including corporate fares, to the world’s largest and most diverse travel network. Under the agreement, Amadeus travel sellers in over 190 countries around the world will be able to access Mango’s content through the same search and booking flow as that used for traditional carriers.
Direct messaging with Mango will allow seamless access to its content, and Passenger Name Records (PNRs) will be confirmed immediately with a Mango record locator. This enables travel sellers to easily make changes to any Mango booking and use the same invoicing and billing process as for any other air content available through Amadeus. Booking LCCs on the Amadeus system is five times faster compared to the direct channel, while modifying tickets can be done eight minutes quicker than any other channel.
