Bamboo Airways Selects Amadeus’ Altéa Passenger Service System (PSS) in Preparation for Global Expansion
Today, it has been announced that Bamboo Airways will join the 200 airlines already using Amadeus PSS tech worldwide. The airline has selected Amadeus as their next-generation technology partner. The airline will implement the market-leading Amadeus Altéa solution, revenue management solutions, and digital experience solutions.
Announcing the partnership, Mr Nguyen Manh Quan, CEO of Bamboo Airways said:

Our adoption of the Altéa PSS and other digital solutions marks a crucial breakthrough in our business strategy, thus creating a launch pad to thrive in international markets, join the world’s major airline alliance down the line, and affirm our global status.”
Bamboo Airways is a Vietnam-based leisure airline. Currently, the airline has 30 aircraft and operates approximately 170 flights per day. Back in July, Bamboo Airways announced the goal to reach 100 jets by 2028. As part of these expansion plans, the airline is also advancing their digital transformation.
This solution will enable Bamboo Airways to delivery modern, efficient reservation services for front-line employees to aid customers in purchasing, changing, and using services from the airline. The solution aims to simplify the experience for the airline and the customer.
