SunExpress switches to IBS software platform iFly Res

SunExpress, the joint venture of Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, has successfully changed to IBS Software´s PSS platform, iFly Res, to power its passenger reservation, ticketing, and departure control operations, the software services company said.

iFly Res software from IBS enables enhanced general communication between SunExpress and its distribution network, the European travel agencies. The new system contains the distribution standard for ticket sales, the New Distribution Capability (NDC) introduced by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

The simple and easy presentation of air fares and other travel services supports both the daily work volume of SunExpress partners within the travel industry and the demand of consumers using the newly redesigned website sunexpress.com. The SunExpress website is now being used more and more intensively for travelers´ direct bookings, for immediate travel modifications, also in responsive design via mobile devices.

iFly Res also enables the integration of 116 online travel agencies, 9 departure control systems used at all international stations, and 9 systems for ticket payments, combined and integrated in the 5 most important GDS systems.

SunExpress, with a fleet of over 70 aircrafts, carried 8 million passengers in 2016 to more than 80 destinations across Europe, Turkey and Northern Africa.
