Pioneer Travel Software Introduced in CubaPDFImprimirE-Mail
Havana, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) Amadeus travel agency, started today in Cuba a pioneer travel software that includes booking for inland transportation, through a project with Viazul and Cubana de AviaciĆ³n, and the collaboration of Iberia.
Viazul, the main bus company with regular service in this country, will assume from Tuesday the implementation of a system of inventory control, distribution, check-in and issuing e-tickets, which benefits the tourism industry in the archipelago.

This electronic booking mechanism covers all Viazul national routes. The project consists of two phases and includes system processes, the provision of the initial basic equipment for inland terminals and Viazul Booking Center (CR), besides the training of the operations staff and technicians in terminals.

This plan includes access to the system from all travel agencies which are clients of Amadeus in Cuba.

The second phase is scheduled for 2015 and includes the distribution of Viazul routes through a shared code with Cubana de AviaciĆ³n for all travel agencies worldwide.

The deputy director general of Omnibus Nacionales, Alberto Ramos, told reporters that through Amadeus network, all Cuban travel agencies will be able to make Viazul bookings electronically.

This project aims to develop destinations within the country (to place them on the world tourism map) and save time and steps for Viazul.

Amadeus, created in the 1980s, has about 10 thousand employees and offices in Madrid, Nice and Erding, with 71 commercial organizations. Viazul is a transport dependency of Omnibus Nacionales created in Cuba in 1996.
