Fri, Feb 8, 2013, 11:49 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 08, Colombo: Sri Lanka's national carrier, SriLankan Airlines has entered into an agreement with Amadeus IT Group and will migrate to Amadeus' full Altéa suite, the full passenger service system by 2014.

Under the deal, both SriLankan and Sri Lanka's budget airline Mihin Lanka will be able to adopt Amadeus' next generation IT suite in order to manage its mission-critical reservations, ticketing, inventory and departure control processes.

The deal is a first of its kind for Amadeus in the Indian subcontinent.

The agreement between SriLankan and Amadeus will also help facilitate the airline's entry into the oneworld global alliance.

Under the terms of the agreement the two companies will work in close co-operation to begin the migration process from SriLankan's existing passenger service system to Altéa with the first phase of the migration, covering the reservations, inventory and ticketing modules, scheduled to be completed this year.

Migration to the Altéa departure control system module is planned to commence in the first half of 2014.

"We consider this a significant move in our future plans to place SriLankan Airlines in an advantageous position and becoming the first airline to adopt the Altéa Suite in the Indian subcontinent displays our commitment to be on par with the technological developments that are critical for efficiency in today’s aviation industry," Nishantha Wickremasinghe, chairman of SriLankan Airlines said.
