Amadeus targets LCCs with deal for Accenture’s Navitaire
- Sep 16, 2015
Amadeus has agreed to acquire Navitaire, the Accenture subsidiary that provides technology and business solutions to the airline industry. The US$830 million deal will give Amadeus access to Navitaire’s solutions for the low-cost airline segment, complementing Amadeus’ Altéa suite for full-service carriers. Amadeus intends to market and sell the two product portfolios separately.
The announcement marks a new chapter for Navitaire that will enable the company to accelerate and deepen their industry offerings. Customers will benefit from greater access to Amadeus’ industry solutions to help support their growth and link with traditional industry partners. At the same time, they will continue to benefit from Accenture’s expertise and capabilities as a result of the Accenture-Amadeus alliance.
