Amadeus joins International LGBTQ+ Travel Association



Amadeus has joined the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association (IGLTA) as the travel technology company works to fulfil ambitions as an active ally of the LGBTQ+ community.


IGLTA has a mission to provide information and resources for LGBTQ+ travellers and expand LGBTQ+ tourism globally by demonstrating its significant social and economic impact.


“IGLTA welcomes Amadeus with open arms! Its commitment to inclusive travel experiences truly aligns with our mission to advance LGBTQ+ tourism,” said IGLTA president, John Tanzella.


“Its global influence adds tremendous value to our community, and we’re excited to see the collaborative opportunities its membership unlocks.”


Amadeus has a strong track record of support for the LGBTQ+ community, becoming a supporter of the United Nations Standards of Conduct for Business for tackling discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people in 2018.



The company is also a founding member of REDI (Red Empresarial por la Diversidad e Inclusión LGBTI+), the first Spanish business network of professionals promoting LGBTQ+ equality and inclusion at work in organisations across Spain.


Ana Doval, senior vice president, people and culture, Amadeus, said: “At Amadeus our aspiration is to be one of the leaders in diversity, equity and inclusion in the technology industry, enabling every employee to reach their full potential.


“We work to foster a culture of belonging, attracting the best talent from all backgrounds, and positioning the company as a role model for an inclusive employee experience.”


Within the company, Amadeus Proud, a global employee resource group where LGBTQ+ colleagues and allies can come together, is a growing space where everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or expression is encouraged to realise their whole self, from both a personal and professional perspective.

IGLTA was founded in 1983 and is the leading global network of tourism businesses welcoming LGBTQ+ travellers. Members include LGBTQ+ friendly accommodations, transport, destinations, service providers, travel advisors, tour operators, events and travel media located in over 80 countries.
