IBS Software inks multi-year contract with SunExpress Airline


Trivandrum: Technopark based IBS Software today announced the company has been selected by SunExpress Airline, the joint venture of Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, as its Passenger Services System (PSS) provider.

The multi-year contract for the engagement was formally signed yesterday by Jaan Albrecht, MD, SunExpress; Ahmet Çalışkan, Deputy MD, SunExpress; and V K Mathews, Executive Chairman, IBS Group at Antalya in Turkey.

The engagement will see IBS implement its Passenger Services System (PSS), iFly Res, for integrated reservations, ticketing, and departure control operations. IBS’ platform will replace the existing legacy system, allowing SunExpress to open up new revenue streams from both its charter and scheduled flights business.

The new-gen Passenger Services System (PSS) will considerably augment SunExpress’ interline and codeshare capabilities. The airline would also be well positioned to significantly increase its revenue by providing flexibility to sell different ancillary services, improving speed to market for new sources of revenue and enhancing efficiency through the automation of most manual processes.

Turkey based SunExpress, with its subsidiary SunExpress Deutschland based in Frankfurt, Germany operates both scheduled flights and charter business and carries around nine million passengers per year, serving more than 110 cities.

In a release, Jaan said, “We have had healthy and successful growth during the last four years and as a part of our growth strategy, we decided to change our reservation system to allow for an improved contribution to our daily business by generating more revenue and enhancing sales channels with our business partners. As a result of this, we are delighted to enter into cooperation with IBS and look forward to fully using the capabilities of the new system to enhance our passenger experience and improve our revenue.”

“The contract has been inked after an intense evaluation process, which demonstrates that the investments we are making in iFlyRes and other products to enable the ‘Digital Airline’, are on the right track. Our outstanding record of delivering value to our customers, as well as the professionalism and commitment of our people has made us a trusted transformation partner among some of the iconic names in the industry. I look forward to a successful partnership with SunExpress,” said Mathews.
