Lagos Aviation Academy becomes Amadeus Certified Training Partner in Nigeria

Lagos Aviation Academy boosts capacity with new training facility

Lagos Aviation Academy, a fast growing aviation training centre in Nigeria has been certified as an Amadeus Training Partner, which gives the Academy the license 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.

“It allows the users to be better informed and avoid unnecessary booking errors. It is an honour for us at Lagos Aviation Academy to have become a Certified Training Partner with Amadeus and currently the only one in Nigeria,” Bankole Bernard, academy director at Lagos Aviation Academy and chairman of the Association of Aviation Training Organizations in Nigeria said.

Amadeus is at the heart of the global travel industry. With its people, its technology and its innovation, Amadeus is dedicated to working with its customers and partners to power great journeys through technology.
