Navitaire is First Accounting Provider Awarded IATA ONE Order Certification

Landmark achievement recognizes leadership in the emerging standard

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/IATA?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#IATAlt;/agt;–Navitaire, a leading provider of airline technology solutions to LCCs
and other high growth airlines, is the first passenger revenue
accounting provider to be granted ONE Order (OO) Capable certification
from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

By achieving the award, Navitaire, an Amadeus company, and its SkyLedger®
revenue accounting solution have been recognized for their ability and
compliance with the ONE Order XML-based set of standards put forth by
IATA as the wave of the future. ONE Order is the concept of a single
customer order record, which holds all data elements obtained and
required for order fulfillment across the air travel cycle, reducing the
need for e-tickets and EMDs.

“As the pioneer of ticketless travel since 1993, many ONE Order concepts
mirror Navitaire solutions’ founding principles,” said David P. Evans,
Navitaire CEO. “We’re honored to be recognized as a pivotal player
helping the industry usher in modern approaches using more advanced
technology.”

Navitaire was granted “ONE Order Capable” status as Accounting Provider
for its ONE Order-based solution, Navitaire SkyLedger Revenue
Accounting, under the IATA ONE Order Certification Program. This
designation recognizes that the Navitaire SkyLedger Revenue Accounting
system supports deployments for ancillaries whose schemas are compliant
with the standard ONE Order message schema, version 18.2.

Navitaire’s recently completed pilot demonstrated its ability to both
create and consume ONE Order messages for non-flight ancillaries,
specifically hotel rooms, sold through its Order Management System
(OMS), Travel Commerce Plus dynamic packaging solution, and perform the
subsequent accounting through its SkyLedger revenue accounting system.

Leveraging the tight integration with Navitaire’s New Skies®
reservations platform, Navitaire SkyLedger clients have performed
real-time accounting for bookings for over a decade, and real-time
“wheels up” lift accounting since 2011. ONE Order is another option for
Navitaire clients to build on SkyLedger’s advanced, real-time processing
capabilities to manage sales and revenue reporting, tracking and
accounting for flights, plus ancillaries. Clients can now take even
greater advantage of these capabilities to create orders with ONE
Order-enabled non-flight ancillary business partners.

“We welcome Navitaire as the first company certifying as a ONE Order
Capable accounting provider,” said Yanik Hoyles, IATA’s Director,
Industry Distribution Programs. “Companies achieving the ONE Order
certification are helping the industry to simplify and modernize the
order management process, which is crucial to building airline retailing
and digital transformation.”
