SAS Group has signed a 10-year deal with distribution specialist Amadeus to adopt its Altea customer management platform.

The passenger service system will be used by SAS Group's Scandinavian Airlines, Wideroe and Blue1 carriers, through a phased migration process which will start in 2010.

Through the partnership, SAS Group airlines will adopt the full Altea solution to manage global sales and reservations, inventory and departure control processes.

"We are pleased to have signed a long-term agreement that will replace our legacy passenger service systems with a modern and standardised community solution," says SAS Group senior vice-president Mats Fagerlund.
