The cost of obtaining airline fares and tax information from host Global Distribution Systems (GDS) has risen exponentially over the past few years due largely to increased window shopping, price comparison and robotic web site scraping activities. Airlines have realized that this has become a significant part of the cost of running their online booking platform. Carriers have sought alternate means to obtain this data and at the same time continue to provide a dynamic online booking engine.
Air Moldova boosted its operational efficiency today, as it went online with the new 2e Systems eeDepart web check-in platform. The airline, based out of Chisinau, is the national airline of Moldova and offers web check-in for 20 stations system wide.
Austrian Airlines passengers now have the ability at booking confirmation to 'name their price' for an upgrade to Business Class when booking online at www.austrian.com, which is powered by 2e Systems.
In April of 2013, Air Moldova acquired 2e Systems to develop the eeBook, eeDepart and eePromote solutions for the carrier. The airline, based out of Chisinau, is the national airline of Moldova and operates scheduled services to 20 destinations in Europe.
In order to support Condor in simplifying the handling of Advance Passenger Information System (APIS), 2e Systems developed an upgrade to the online check-in platform for the carrier to manage routes and flights where passengers are required to submit this information prior to departure.
