The deal, announced at Business Travel Show Europe in London

applying innovation to support Microsoft and we believe Cytric by
Amadeus will push the boundaries of what the corporate travel sector has
seen until this point," said Amadeus Cytric Solutions executive vice
president Rudy Daniello.

International has become the first company to begin rolling out Cytric
Easy from Amadeus to its employees.
Dalmau, vice president, business development, at Melia Hotels, said:
“Being able to find and book a flight, hotel or car without leaving
Microsoft applications is a game-changer and we’re excited to be helping
Amadeus further define new features for Cytric Easy.
