Akasa Air provided an update on its plans to open business soon, stating that it has chosen a service provider for its reservations system. The soon-to-be-launched airline is sure that its technology provider will meet its requirements as a low-cost carrier focused on data-driven customer service solutions.
The budget carrier has entrusted its reservation and retailing systems to Navitaire, a Minneapolis-based Amadeus company that specialises in providing technology and business solutions to the aviation industry.
The capacity to provide "affordable travel options" to passengers is one of the reasons Akasa picked the cloud-enabled Navitaire Airline Platform as its reservations system provider.
It is significantly behind schedule as it waits for the delivery of its first aircraft in order to complete the proving flights required for the Air Operators Certificate (AOC).
Navitaire, a leading provider of digital travel systems, works with a number of airlines throughout the world, including Air Canada, IndiGo, Wizz Air, and AirAsia. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amadeus, Spain's largest travel technology firm.
Navitaire was one of the first suppliers to shift its whole airline platform of solutions to the cloud, providing dynamic scalability and access to cutting-edge technology to its operators.
