Air Canada Turns to Amadeus Technology to Power its New Online Global Shopping and Booking Experience

Simple, better, quicker, accurate: these are the hallmarks of the best online shopping experiences for travellers when it comes to booking a flight.  And now customers of Air Canada have all of these features in a new and improved booking experience, powered by leading digital solutions from global travel technology company, Amadeus.

Air Canada, the largest provider in the Canadian market, recently unveiled the all-new aircanada.com featuring a new, responsive design, improved booking flow and enhanced search options for travellers. Amadeus’ technology will support the airline’s strategy of continued innovation and enhancement of its online retail channel.

Working in close partnership with Amadeus, this latest initiative gives us the technology foundation to deliver a best-in-class digital experience and will allow us to continue to grow and serve more travelers worldwide,” said Lise Fournel, Chief Information Officer, Air Canada. 

Air Canada’s completely re-engineered website offers simple and intuitive search and shopping. Benefits include:
