Amadeus Joins Forces with IGLTA to Champion Inclusive Travel


Amadeus has joined forces with the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association (IGLTA) to further its commitment to inclusivity and support for the LGBTQ+ community.

IGLTA warmly welcomes Amadeus, recognising their dedication to creating seamless and welcoming travel experiences for everyone. “Their global influence is invaluable to our community, and we’re excited to explore collaborative opportunities that advance LGBTQ+ tourism on a global scale,” said John Tanzella, IGLTA President/CEO.

Amadeus boasts a strong track record of inclusivity, including endorsing the UN Standards of Conduct for Business and supporting organisations like REDI, Spain’s first LGBTQ+ equality network.

Shalini Nair Kumar, Head of People and Culture, APAC at Amadeus, emphasises the company’s commitment to fostering a diverse and welcoming environment. “We go beyond internal initiatives like employee resource groups and skilling programs,” she adds, “by developing technologies and services that cater to the diverse needs of all travelers, including the LGBTQ+ community.”

Amadeus’ membership in IGLTA opens doors to collaboration and further innovation in inclusive travel solutions. This aligns with their continuous efforts to make travel accessible and enjoyable for everyone, as Till Streichert, CFO and executive sponsor of Amadeus Proud, states: “For years, supporting the LGBTQ+ community has been a priority for Amadeus. Joining IGLTA strengthens our commitment to creating a more inclusive world where everyone feels welcome.”
