Etihad, the national airline of the UAE, is to implement a new revenue management solution to help provide it with a better understanding of distribution trends. After a competitive bidding process, the airline opted for Zeus from Airlogica, which is designed to make it easier to control Global Distribution System (GDS) costs. “Etihad understands how important it is to keep up to date with industry trends and ticketing activity, which is why we believe that this new system will prove to be an invaluable tool,” said Ali Saleh Al Bloushi, head of revenue management at Etihad Airways. “After an extensive review we have identified Airlogica’s Zeus as the best available product to manage the challenging area of our distribution costs across the GDS. Furthermore, Zeus will allow us to gain a deeper understanding of all travel agent bookings, which we are confident will lead to a decrease in GDS costs and, in turn, will enable us to continue offering our guests a superior service.” Zeus will allow Etihad to monitor bookings made by travel agents, putting the airline in a better position to adapt to business changes. “Etihad identified the added value in our solutions, which will assist them to analyse the Billing Information Data Transfer (BIDT) and decrease their distribution costs,” said Peter Pont, general manager, Airlogica EMEA.
