A Faster, more efficient and profitable way of booking even more LCCs

As low cost and hybrid Carriers (LCCs) continue to evolve and grow both in passenger numbers and network size (LCCs represented over 28% of all seats sold in 2017), it becomes critical that agents are able to book these carriers in the most efficient way.

Having recognized this evolution Amadeus continues to significantly expand its global LCCs offer, integrating more airlines, their associated ancillary services portfolio, increasing number of routes and interlining agreements; all this to ensure that agents can offer more competitive and relevant content to their customers.

With multiple connectivity types, Amadeus can ensure that it is able to integrate even more airlines, whilst maintaining a consistent workflow that follows the same seamless booking process as the one used for full service carriers (FSCs).

The LCC Graph displays the content bookable in Amadeus globally and locally. Just select your country and click on the chart lines to find out which airlines are available today in your market and the corresponding carrier connectivity level.

Discover how your travel agency can book LCCs more efficiently with the Amadeus LCC Interactive tool.
