GDS provider Amadeus said an increase in air transactions pushed its earnings up 12.2% during the first six months of 2011.

The Madrid-based company said its six-month profit increased to $377 million, compared with the first half of 2010.

Revenue grew 3.9%, to $1.9 billion. Excluding the impact of the sale of its equity stakes in Vacation.com and Hospitality Group, revenue grew 5.8%.

Amadeus said that passengers boarding flights using its booking systems rose 32.5% to 203.9 million, while the company’s global market share of air travel agency bookings had increased by .8%.

Amadeus President Luis Maroto said Amadeus’ distribution and IT solutions businesses were growing, and that the company particularly had success in the Asia-Pacific region.
