Head quartered in Mumbai, India, Cleartrip’s multi-modal offering includes air, hotel, and rail for leisure and corporate travellers. Under the new long-term partnership, Cleartrip will use Amadeus as its primary technology provider for its online air offering. The company’s website will be powered by Amadeus Web Services 2.0 – a second-generation, state-of-the-art global technology platform that provides full access to Amadeus’ extensive content of over 110,000 hotels, 430 bookable airlines and much more.
Cleartrip will also implement Amadeus Master Pricer, a cutting-edge low fare search tool which uses the world’s most advanced algorithms to help travellers find flight options, quickly and easily, to suit their travel needs and budget.
