Amtrak is working to connect directly with corporate booking tools in an effort to compete with short-haul carriers in the Northeast Corridor and beyond. Amtrak's content will be integrated into flight option matrix. "The fact that we are going to now be integrated with the air display is key to us," said Craig White, senior director of travel industry sales at Amtrak. "The GDS-based tools are a ways away from making that happen at all. A lot of times we may not be top of mind for travelers, particularly in the Northeast corridor and now being a part of that we see it as being a strong growth potential for us."
