BANGKOK, 03rd September 2013: mercator Asia will now be providing its leading passenger services system Avantik to Jet Asia Airways. Based out of the Thai capital’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Jet Asia Airways specialises in scheduled and charter flights to Japan, South Korea and China.
Moving away from the traditional charter model with the introduction of scheduled services, Jet Asia is outgrowing its current passenger services system and opting for a more flexible, web-based booking engine, with access to numerous sales distribution channels.
mercator Asia, which is based in Bangkok, will assist Jet Asia with its sales and distribution channels, enabling its customers to save time and book online. Flexible technology will not only support the airline in its existing daily operations, such as customer check-in and departure control, but also its future operations as it seeks to expand its network.
