Hitit, a provider of airline and travel IT, has its traditional conference with the participation of its business partners and experts in the airline industry.

 

Eleven countries participated in the event including Germany, France, Ghana, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Namibia, Pakistan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkmenistan and Turkey. Representatives of many airlines and aviation handling companies from the 11 countries heard from experts about the latest developments and enhancements of Hitit’s solutions, the new organisational structure of the company, and cutting-edge trends of the industry.

In the opening remarks of the conference Nevra Onursal Karaagac, CMO of Hitit, said: “We are here today to shed light on the future of the airline industry with all our business partners to discuss the new trends and challenges. The competition is very big. No matter what type of an airline you are, full service - legacy, low cost, or hybrid you still need to find ways to generate more revenue. At Hitit, we are producing high-tech solutions that will enable each of our business partners to profit from the demanding competition conditions, and we continue with our R & D projects to update our solution suite according to the latest trends.” “…Ancillaries are very important, however targeting the right product to the right traveller is equally, if not more critical. We know the coming years will be even more focused on big data, personalisation and of course mobile. That’s why at Hitit we are focusing on each and every part of these. Hitit’s technology brand Crane offers PSS, accounting and operations solutions. We are a one-stop-shop for our user community. We believe that the seamless connection between the systems help the airlines operate smoothly. We expand our offerings according to the demands of the travel industry. In 2017 we processed approximately 65 million passengers through our PSS system. Our DCS solution is currently used in about 210 airports. Approximately 70,000 agencies use our system to sell your tickets.” 

Erdinc Ugurlu, vice president of Pegasus Airlines; Kashif Rana, chief systems officer of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA); Mohamed Achraf Badreddine, product director of Nouvelair, all made presentations about the different issues in the aviation sector, from the point of view of the airline companies.   

In addition to the airline presentations, some industry experts talked about the remarkable effects of blockchain technology on the aviation sector, how PSS enhancements can bring further success in revenue management strategies, the biggest impact for airline cargo, and what we can expect in airport technology.

At the end of the conference, a panel regarding the digital transformation in the aviation industry was held and moderated by Semra Kandemir, chief product strategy officer of Hitit. Baris Findik, CIO of Pegasus Airlines; Kashif Rana from PIA; and Hakan Unlu, Consultant at Hitit all discussed the latest developments of cryptocurrencies or crypto techniques for airlines, e-gates technology in the airports, various airport operations, and retail strategies for a positive passenger experience.
