The Altéa PSS allows carriers to deliver modern, efficient reservation services for front-line employees to aid customers in purchasing, changing, and using services.

Besides, the airline will also implement Amadeus’ groundbreaking Network Revenue Management solution, powered with Artificial Intelligence capabilities. This technology will enable the carrier to boost revenues across its network as it builds routes through connecting hubs, codeshares, and partnerships. Thanks to sophisticated algorithms, it will also enable live data and customer choice modeling. This will ensure Bamboo Airways can efficiently forecast passenger demand and willingness to pay while helping to react quickly to changing market conditions.

Additionally, Bamboo Airways will implement a modern front-end solution, Amadeus Reference Experience, for booking, self-service check-in, and self-re-accommodation workflows. This technology will enable the airline to create a seamless customer experience on the Bamboo Airways website and other digital channels. The solution features a customizable UI built on top of Digital Experience suite orchestration engines, allowing the airline to shape its online experience with built-in configuration capabilities.
