Tuesday 31st January 2012

SkyWork Airlines has introduced an innovative new booking system enabling worldwide customers to benefit from a faster and simpler flight booking process on

Expanding regional airline, SkyWork has launched the award-winning booking system 'Avantik,' developed by Emirates subsidiary software company Mercator. This means that SkyWork flights can be booked on the major computer reservations systems, Gaileo and Amadeus. Travel agencies in the UK now have an additional booking channel too. Avantik was selected because it is, specifically designed for lower cost, hybrid and regional carriers. Avantik is built on the latest technology systems architecture using Microsoft Technologies. Mercator's Avantik is fully IATA e-ticketing compliant, designed to efficiently manage a wide range of airline passenger services.

These include inventory management, multi-channel reservations, yield and revenue management, departure control, weight and balance, electronic ticketing, revenue accounting, code-share, interlining, crew management, flight control and real-time reporting to monitor business operations.

In addition, passengers can now select up to four different classes of booking, offering enhanced flexibility to meet their individual travel needs. The new booking options are offered on a range of tariffs.

Having enhanced its footprint in the UK with increased twice-daily Monday to Friday services on the London City-Bern route (which will be one year old at the end of March), SkyWork's new 'SkyExecutive' service offers an allowance of up to two 8kg carry-on bags, 20kg of checked luggage and a fully refundable ticket on cancellation (with the exception of the credit card fee). Alternatively, passengers may re-book a ticket without incurring any additional charges. SkyWork hopes to expand the online flight booking system in the future to include additional features and benefits for passengers.
