IBS Software (IBS) has been selected by South Korea based Jin Air, a subsidiary HanJinKal, as its Passenger Services System (PSS) provider, the company said.
The seven year, multi-million dollar contract for the engagement was formally signedby Choi JungHo, CEO of Jin Air and VK Mathews, Executive Chairman – IBS Group, in Seoul.
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 system of a renowned PSS provider allowing Jin Air to open up new revenue streams from both its low cost and scheduled flights business. IBS´ loyalty management system, iFly Loyalty, will also be implemented along with iFly Res. This will support the diverse needs of Jin Air like FFP, coalition programs, SME and corporate programs and other various models.
The contract, awarded after more than two years of evaluation, will see IBS implement its modern PSS system by March 2018, which will also enable Jin Air open up possibilities to generate significant ancillary revenue with flexible management options.
iFly Res, with native NDC integration, will empower Jin Air seamlessly integrate its PSS to third party systems, and will considerably augment the airlines interline and codeshare capabilities. Jin Air has been operating on the same system as Korean Air, and will now look to simplify its business as it transitions from the two different systems to the new-gen iFly Res platform. Established in 2008, Jin Air has a fleet strength of 24 aircrafts and flies to 37 local and international destinations including US, Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand.
