Mango and Amadeus have announced a content agreement that will make the airline’s content, including corporate fares, available on the GDS.  

Mango’s content will now be accessible through the same search and booking flow as that used for traditional carriers. 

Direct messaging with Mango allows for faster access to the content, and Passenger Name Records can be confirmed immediately with a Mango record locator. This means that agents can make changes to Mango bookings more easily and use the same invoice and billing process as for any other airline content through Amadeus.

A release put out by Amadeus said that booking low-cost carriers on the Amadeus system was five times faster compared with the direct channel, while modifying tickets can be eight minutes quicker than any other channel.

Andy Hedley, gm for Southern Africa at Amadeus, said: “Many low-cost carriers are starting to distribute to travel agencies to pursue revenue growth. Through distributing via Amadeus we have shown how airlines can improve margins by targeting the higher yield business passenger and extending their reach into new segments. The travel agency community also benefits from deeper access to content, enabling them to respond to travellers’ evolving needs.” 

For travellers, itineraries booked on Mango will now be available online and on mobile via CheckMyTrip.
