A series of initiatives undertaken by Travel Agents and Tour Operators were published already on the 112 website of the Commission in order to serve as best practice.

The latest such initiative comes from Amadeus, a leading provider of advanced technology solutions for the global travel industry. Customer groups include travel providers (e.g. airlines, hotels, rail and ferry operators, etc.), travel sellers (travel agencies and websites), and travel buyers (corporations and travel management companies). 112-emergency number is displayed on all Amadeus travel confirmations in the German and the Austrian market. Every year approx. 4,5 million travel confirmations are printed and sent to travellers.
