British Airways has upgraded its passenger revenue processes.
Amadeus, the travel technology partner and transaction processor for the global travel and tourism industry, has announced that British Airways has become the first airline to sign up for its new Passenger Revenue Accounting solution. British Airways will benefit from Amadeus’ user-friendly, Web-based system, which employs state-of-the-art technology in order to transform revenue accounting from a labour-intensive task to a fast, flexible strategic function. Amadeus Passenger Revenue Accounting is designed to help airlines increase revenue, reduce operational costs and make revenue decisions more quickly and accurately. Whereas current passenger revenue accounting processes are often slow to recognise and process revenue, Amadeus’ new system offers real-time, largely automated data acquisition and processing. British Airways is scheduled to migrate to the new solution in early 2014 and will benefit from the solution’s full integration with the Amadeus Altéa solution, for which British Airways is a significant and long-standing customer.
