Amadeus today reinforced its commitment to developing the airport of the
future with the launch of Amadeus Airport Common Use Service (ACUS), a

physical space and the IT resources of the airport, eliminating hosting

situations such as weather disruptions and traffic peaks. Airlines will
also be able to reduce costs thanks to centralized connectivity to
airports and simplified passenger processing. As a consequence of these
streamlined operations, passengers will benefit from a quick and fluid
