How Amadeus and PayPal are collaborating to support airlines

Article | May 18, 2021

We know from Amadeus’ recent Travel Payments Guide study that increasingly travelers are moving to new, contactless, payment methods.

This is good news for the industry as e-wallet payment methods can help play an important role in helping to manage the complexity resulting from the crisis in several ways. PayPal has been working closely with Amadeus for quite some time, offering an alternative payment method to airlines as part of Amadeus’ Payment Platform. This means airlines can decide to offer PayPal to travelers through their websites across global markets with transaction references, helping to ease reconciliation.

The Rise of Ultra-Long-Haul Flights Is Changing the Way We Travel

Article | March 3, 2020

Airlines for decades often sought to fly the biggest aircraft they could on routes between the largest cities, pushing passengers through megahubs in New York, Frankfurt, London, Tokyo, or Dubai, where they could switch to a smaller airplane to take them to Nashville, Osaka, or Nairobi. Two new aircraft, the Boeing 787 the one on the Qantas flight and Airbus A350, however, have changed the model, and in the coming decades, more passengers will be able to fly nonstop to more places than ever on ultra-long-haul flights.
