Amadeus and Ural Airlines sign long-term agreement

Ural Airlines, one of the top seven air carriers in Russia, has signed a long-term technological partnership with Amadeus to provide for the launch and delivery of a new generation passenger service system.

Amadeus is a technological partner and processing operator for the global tourist and air travel industry. The piece by piece conversion to Amadeus's new technological platform will start in 2013, Ural Business Consulting reports.

Under the terms of the large-scale cooperation agreement, Ural Airlines will begin to use a full-scale version of the Amadeus Altea platform. The platform includes accompanying services called Altea Reservation, administration called Altea Inventory, an automated check-in system called Altea Departure Control, ticket booking modules and resource storage.

With the launch of three Altea modules, Ural Airlines will be the first Russian air carrier to use the Altea Departure Control system for automated check-in, according to Ural Business Consulting.

In December 1993, Ural Airlines separated from the Yekaterinburg Airport and entered the Russian transportation market. Millions of Russian and foreign travelers alike have flown with aircraft from Ural Airlines with a wide range of destinations. In 2010, Ural Airlines aircraft carried 1,792,220 passengers, growing 20 percent when compared to the previous year. Ural Airlines airplanes made 16,655 flights, representing an increase of 22 percent compared to the previous year.
