AMADEUS claims to have increased its share of the Asia Pacific travel distribution market to 32.8% during the first three months of 2009, making it the top Global Distribution System in the region.
The increase has come in a falling market and at the expense of major rivals Sabre Pacific and Galileo.
David Brett, President of Amadeus Asia Pacific, said during 2008 travel booked through Amadeus Asia Pacific fell by 4%, compared with an overall regional market drop of 7%.
Brett also claimed Amadeus processed more than 40% of all regional online bookings.
In Asia Pacific, Amadeus has offices in 39 countries, 19,500 travel agency customers, 92 airlines, and almost 200 hotel partners. Travel Trends: 3/6/09
