Amadeus Collaborates With Next Generation Tech to Shape Future of Travel

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - December 22, 2015) - TripVerse, a travel plan discovering platform has joined Amadeus' Asia Pacific travel startup initiative. Amadeus Next was created to mentor, nurture and partner with travel startups in Asia Pacific to evolve original ideas in travel. TripVerse matches itineraries planned by real travellers with offline-access and flight search capability. It aspires to flow within the Amadeus ecosystem.

"Startups disrupt the status quo by pushing technology to new frontiers and this is especially true in the travel space," said Simon Akeroyd, Vice President of Corporate Strategy of Amadeus Asia Pacific. "This spirit of innovation is also a core component of who we are, so it makes perfect sense to foster and support the travel tech community in Asia Pacific."

With TripVerse, travelers are provided a mobile and convenient travel experience for creating personal itineraries, keeping the traveler informed even when they are offline. TripVerse aims to reduce the amount of travel-related apps people need by combining authentic content discovery with offline-access and booking capability.
