The Amadeus EASE™ (Extended Airline System Environment) is a virtualized shared use passenger processing technology solution that enables airlines to deliver a consistent, optimized gate and boarding experience to their customers while delivering complete airline native business process functionality.
The EASE™ solution delivers optimized airport terminal flexibility by enabling ‘any airline, any position, anytime’ passenger processing capabilities. The EASE™ advanced technology platform is built on an ‘open’ architecture, allowing for seamless integration with additional Amadeus technology as well as that of any third party system provider.
When integrated with an airport’s operational systems, the airport can provide seamless interoperability into the airline operational environment making shared use more transparent.

- Enhances the airport’s return on existing passenger processing facilities.
- A valuable addition to the airport’s “common use” architecture.
- Easy RFID implementation & integration as IBMR is RFID-ready.
