Amadeus to buy into Opodo

GLOBAL
distribution system Amadeus is set to acquire a stake in airline-owned website
Opodo.

Industry
sources have revealed it is in advanced negotiations to acquire either part or
all of the website. Opodo and Amadeus refused to comment claiming it was “market
speculation”.

The two
companies already work closely as Amadeus provides global distribution services
for Opodo. In addition, Air France, Iberia and Lufthansa have shares in both
companies.

One source said: “This is definitely happening.
They’ve been in talks for months and the deal is near closure.”
