MADRID — Amadeus and Alitalia have signed a long-term extension of their content agreement.

This deal will allow travel agencies worldwide to have guaranteed access to the full range of fares, schedules and inventory through the Amadeus system.

Following the successful launch in Italy, Alitalia has also expanded the distribution of its ancillary services in Spain. Amadeus agents in both countries are now able to sell a wider choice of Alitalia’s ancillary services which include bags, lounge access and insurance using the AAS solution, a fully integrated end-to-end solution for the booking and sale of ancillary services.

The payment of Alitalia’s ancillary services can be made using the electronic miscellaneous document (EMD). This electronic messaging system facilitates the distribution, sale, provision and management of ancillary services, while reducing the use of paper and simplifying the process as recommended under the IATA e-services initiative.
