Lagos Aviation Academy, one of the fastest-growing aviation training centres in Nigeria, has been certified an Amadeus training partner, which licences it to train students on how to navigate the Amadeus reservation system.
The course is designed to help travel consultants learn how to make reservations on Amadeus, using graphical and cryptic commands.
“Gaining a better understanding of travel booking platforms such as Amadeus is essential to ensure smooth operations in a profession as complex as being a travel consultant or a travel manager, especially with the variation of airline policies. This is one of the many qualifications travel agencies should have. We have so many untrained travel consultants out there and we continue to strongly advocate the importance of aviation training and professionalism. Partnering with Amadeus enables us to offer an academic solution to improve comprehension of the Amadeus system.
