If you want to trade on the Spanish Amadeus share price, some preliminary information that will help you to analyse the share. Explore its live stock price and a historical technical analysis of its price as well as complete information on the group's activity.

Elements that can influence the price of this asset:

Analysis N°1

First of all, of course, one has to look at the investments Amadeus has made in research and development in technology. In order to remain a leader in its sector, the group must indeed offer innovative services that meet the needs of its customers.

Analysis N°2

It will of course be necessary to follow the transport sector very closely, particularly air transport. It should be remembered that most of the company's turnover comes from these activities and a crisis such as the one experienced during the pandemic could have negative consequences on its profits.

Analysis N°3

Of course, it is also necessary to take into account the strategic operations implemented by the Amadeus group, such as mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnerships or the creation of joint ventures, which can enable it to boost its activities.

Analysis N°4

The competition in this sector, although weak, is nonetheless important in the context of this fundamental analysis, and you should keep a close eye on the Sabre group, which is Amadeus' most dangerous adversary at the moment. Any news related to the latter can have an impact on the Amadeus share price.

Analysis N°5

Finally, you should of course be interested in the financial reports of the Amadeus group. Amadeus publishes its results every year and every quarter, and it is possible to compare them with analysts' expectations and with the objectives set out in the company's strategic plans.

General presentation of Amadeus

The Spanish group Amadeus owns the largest computerized online travel reservation system. It provides the means for travel agencies and airline sales offices to book hotels, cars or services online to be specific. It also provides IT and online booking software sales services. Most of Amadeus' turnover is made in Europe, but the group also reaches the Asian, American and African market.

The Amadeus share price is currently listed on the Spanish Mercado Continuo market and is included in the calculation of the Ibex 35 stock index.

To help you do so, here are some additional indications of the different sectors and types of businesses that represent a prime target for this group:

Travel suppliers are of course the core target of Amadeus, which offers its services throughout the entire tourism chain. Of course, we mainly find airlines, most often regional or network airlines, but also low-cost transport or leisure companies. But this sector also includes other activities. Hotels and hotel chains are also prime targets for Amadeus and its online reservation system, regardless of the type of service (chains or independent hotels). Amadeus' customers also include various land and maritime companies such as car rental companies, rail transport companies, ferry companies, cruise ship sales agencies and certain insurance companies. Finally and more generally, Amadeus also targets specific tour operators, whether integrated tour operators or general public tour operators.

The second category of Amadeus' customers is the travel sales sector. This is of course mainly travel agencies such as Travel Management Companies or TMCs, but also travel agencies specialising in business travel or those specialising in tourist holidays. Online travel agencies are also to be taken into account, as are consolidators.

Finally, it is important to take into account a third important target of the Amadeus company, which this time concerns buyers in the travel sector, i.e. people or companies that use online travel search, comparison and reservation services. Among these buyers are mainly companies dedicated to companies that wish to reduce their travel expenses and that offer self-booking tools, but also individuals who use Amadeus' services to organize and book their trips (transportation and stays), notably via the Opodo platform.

The major competitors of Amadeus

In order to have a better view of the environment in which the Amadeus Group evolves, it is important to know its main competitors in its sector of activity. We now propose to discover the main players in this sector in a little more detail.

Sabre

The Sabre group is undoubtedly the most important competitor of Amadeus at the moment. It offers a computerised reservation system, also known as a Global Distribution System or GDS, specialising in the air and rail passenger transport sector, but also in the hotel sector and other services related to tourism. It is thus positioned as one of the leaders in this sector along with Amadeus and Worldspan.

Travelport

Another major competitor to Amedeus is the Travelport Worldwide Ltd group, which specialises in providing distribution, technology and payment solutions to the travel and tourism industry. In terms of turnover, the Travelport Group is smaller than its competitors Amadeus and Sabre Corporation in the GDS segment. However, it has gained market share by acquiring Galileo and Worldspan, which were two other players in this sector. It should be noted here that the Travelport group also offers IT services for airlines, including purchasing, ticketing and departure control.

Orbitz

Another competitor to Amadeus is Orbitz, which operates a travel fare aggregation website and a meta-travel search engine. It is a subsidiary of the Expedia group based in Chicago, Illinois. This company was created through a partnership between several major airlines and then owned by various entities. The group benefited from massive investments from Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, Northwest Airlines and United Airlines and then American Airlines in order to start this project in 1999. Orbitz was then launched in June 2001.

IndiGo

Finally, the last major competitor of Amadeus is the IndiGo Group, which is an air transport service provider. Its services include passenger-related ancillary services such as service requests, ticket changes or cancellations, excess baggage management, lounge revenues and convenience fees, cargo services, in-flight sales, advertising, insurance products, or tours and packages.


The major partners of Amadeus

Plusgrade

In 2015, a partnership established between Amadeus and Plusgrade allowed passengers to bid on the price of seats aimed at being upgraded or not having a seat-mate.

Zingle

In 2016, the Amadeus group joined forces with the Zingle company to allow hoteliers to send SMS and other instant messages to their customers in order to personalize their relationships as best as possible.
