Amadeus Careers: Working at Amadeus

Hear from Amadeus employees why Amadeus is a great place to work. What is like to work with a talented team, in an International environment with permanent innovation and a promising professional growth. If you find yourself wondering "Where next?" join us and shape the future of travel.

Scope of this internship:

In order to forecast how much fuel is needed for a flight, Flight Management needs to forecast the number of passengers and the baggage weight the plane will carry. Today, the system is fed by the check-in system, as well as with some historical data from previous flights.

However, some airlines noticed some significant fluctuations in our planning of this overall weight prior to the flight departure.

The scope of this internship is to study the evolution of the flight planning data to suggest some improvement to our planning algorithm.

What to expect:

  • Digging into Flight Management data thanks to Business Intelligence tools
  • Understand better how the weight and balance system and the check-in system interact with each other
  • You will be working in a highly functional area, and will develop some Business Intelligence skills


  • Delivery of new flight planning monitoring dashboards
  • Identification of key factors influencing planning
  • Suggestion to development and product management teams of improvement in the planning algorithms

We are looking for an independent candidate, with an ability to grasp information very quickly, with a strong curiosity in the functional and technical challenges.
