Island Air, Hawaii's inter-island carrier, has announced plans to implement Amadeus' Altea technology, a move the airline says will allow it to ultimately expand its service.
The airline will implement the full portfolio of Altea IT solutions including, e-commerce, reservations, inventory and departure control as well as revenue integrity, loyalty and travel intelligence functionality. Amadeus' solutions allow regional and mid-size airlines quick implementation in a cost-effective way. Island Air, comprised of a 64-seat ATR-72 turbocop and Q400 78-seat aircraft, will begin a phased migration to the new systems this month.
Amadeus is a leading provider of advanced technology solutions for the global travel industry. Customer groups include: travel providers (airlines, hotels, rail and ferry operators, etc.), travel sellers (travel agencies and websites), and travel buyers (corporations and travel management companies). The group employs around 15,200 people worldwide with headquarters in Madrid, Nice and Erding and has a presence in more than 190 countries.
Island Air is among a growing number of airlines, ranging from small carriers to large carries such as Southwest Airlines, Air Transit and Cape Air, which have implemented one or more components of the Armadeus' Altea portfolio. Island Air is currently offering multiple Fly & Stay packages at the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber, Sheraton Kaua'i Resort, Hilton Waikoloa Village and the Napili Kai Beach Resort. Frequently flyers can sign up for the Island Miles program which rewards 500 miles for every flight taken in Hawaii, and a free one-way ticket at 3,000 earned miles.
