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

The Amadeus group publishes and operates one of the largest GSDs or Global Distribution Systems in the travel and flight sector in the world. They're computerized service delivery systems that are used by travel agencies and airlines. As a matter of fact, the company was founded and belongs to several airlines which gives travellers the possibility to book their seats online in addition to other services such as hotel rooms or car hire.

Amadeus ranks first worldwide for these online booking systems in terms of turnover and number of users. As such, it faces weak competition since only three other large companies overshadow it. The companies are Galileo which is second in the ranking, Saber which is in third place and Worldspan which is fourth.

The major partners of Amadeus


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.


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.
