TruJet partners with IBS software to implement passenger service system

India-based TruJet and aviation IT specialist IBS Software have signed an agreement for its passenger service system (PSS) to gain on-ground traction at UDAN regional airport development, the company said.

Under the contract IBS will implement the full suite of the iFly Res solution for passenger reservations covering the inventory, fares and ticketing functionality. The 100% cloud-based solution will enable online/Internet based booking engine (IBE) for both B2C & B2B as well as online & counter check-in at all regional airports.

Hyderabad-based TruJet is the first Indian airline to be granted license by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to operate on all UDAN sectors. Largely a regional airline thus far, TruJet will, through the UDAN scheme, emerge as a mainstream player in the aviation map of India. The airline currently operates a fleet of 5 ATR aircrafts and has signed an agreement with 9W to wet lease 10 more ATR aircrafts.

UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik-Let the Common Man Fly) is a regional connectivity scheme of the Government of India, launched in 2017, to make flying affordable for the masses, while promoting a balanced regional growth across the country.

IBS´ iFly Res, one of the first New Distribution Capability (NDC) compliant PSS systems in the world, comprehensively addresses all the key functions including passenger reservations, schedules and flight control, inventory control, fares & ticketing and departure control.

Trujet, headquartered at Hyderabad, India, operates to 14 destinations in south and central India.
