Amadeus is a multinational technology company dedicated to the world’s travel industry, with headquarters in Madrid, Spain.
We were founded in 1987 by four European airlines: Iberia, Air France, Lufthansa and SAS as an independent and neutral global distribution system, to enable airlines to sell seats more easily, more cost effectively and with greater reach.
We offer cutting-edge technology solutions that help key players in the travel industry succeed in their business, and shape the future of travel moving forward.
And we do it on a truly global scale. In 2017 Amadeus processed more than 630 million bookings. Together with Navitaire, our systems boarded 1.6 billion passengers.
In 2016 we were awarded Red Hat Cloud Innovator of the Year, and closed the acquisition of Navitaire – the leading provider of technology services to hybrid and low-cost airlines.
In 2017, Forbes magazine recognized us as one of the world’s top 15 software companies, and Amadeus has been included to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for five years in a row. We are the only travel technology company in the 2017 DJSI - a key recognition of our commitment to business sustainability, environmental and social practices in all of our operations.
We are a global team, with a workforce made up of 146 nationalities speaking 62 languages. Diversity for us is key.
We are passionate about what we do and believe in aiming for excellence; taking responsibility; working together and putting the customer first.
We have a very clear focus on recruiting and developing talent. It’s the talent and hard work of our people that has enabled our success so far and what will define it in the future.
