Eurolot, a Polish airline headquartered in Warsaw, has implemented ‘iFly Res’ solution from IBS Software to manage passenger reservations of its fleet.

The iFly Res solution combines distinct benefits of a new generation airline system with extensive support of traditional functionalities, a spokesman for Technopark-based IBS Soft said here.

It is a comprehensive customer sales and services solution providing internet booking and Web check-in facilities.

It also facilitates opportunities for shopping, pricing, and inventory control to serve customers at every point in their journey. The solution is expected to reduce cost of operation, increase efficiency and enhance convenience and ease of travel for Eurolot passengers, the spokesman said.

iFly Res distributes Eurolot flights Amadeus, a global distribution system. In future, the airline plans to set up code share and interline agreements with partners by leveraging capabilities of iFly Res.

MOBILE APP

Eurolot will further expand its distribution reach by connecting to online travel agencies such as Travelfusion.

It also plans to introduce passenger reservations through mobile application by connecting to iFly Res solution.

iFly Res and internet booking engine solutions fully support these proposed changes to the Eurolot business model and distribution needs, the spokesman said.

Eurolot was initially established as a subsidiary of LOT Polish Airlines, but today it is looking into transforming business by selling and operating more flights under its own brand.

The airline has started to replace some of its ATRs with next-generation Bombardier Q400 aircraft to increase capacity and support expansion plans.
