CX GDS Distribution Strategy (JUN12)

news
Cathay Pacific/Dragonair switched to Amadeus Altea as our in-house Passenger Service Systems provider for reservation and inventory in February 2012.

There have been some enquiries about whether this move means a change in our distribution strategies. In fact, this move is simply because of the need to migrate from the legacy technology used for 30 years. It does not in any way reflect a change in our distribution strategies & priorities and is certainly NOT an endorsement of the Amadeus GDS distribution product. We are committed to working more closely with GDSs that are the most cost effective for the CX Group. We would like the travel agency community to work together with us to support these priorities.

Any rumours or views suggesting the otherwise should be ignored. Our objective & priority of maintaining our current level of support to our travel partners remain firm & unchanged.



國泰航空及港龍航空於2012年2月轉換了內部客運服務系統,採用以Amadeus Altea為平台的訂位及庫存系統。

國泰集團不時收到查詢,分銷策略是否會因此而改變。事實上轉換內部系統純粹由於舊有客運服務系統已沿用30年,有必要更新,故此採用新系統並不代表分銷策略及政策方針有所不同,國泰集團亦無特別優待Amadeus 環球分銷系統(GDS)。與業界GDS合作方面,成本效益依然是集團的首要考慮,希望今後能繼續得到各旅遊代理的支持。

希望上述聲明能釐清有關謠言,集團的政策方針會維持不變,並將繼續與旅遊代理保持一貫的緊密關係,並肩合作。
