ANA And Nihon Unisys Migrate Japan's Largest Airline's Passenger Sales And Services Applications To Unisys AirCore Solution

Stocks in this article: UIS









BLUE BELL, Pa., July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that All Nippon Airways Co. Ltd (ANA) has successfully migrated its mission-critical passenger sales and service (PSS) applications for domestic flights which are based on Unisys' next-generation Airline Core Systems Solutions (AirCore).

ANA is the eighth largest airline in the world by revenues (2011) and the largest in Japan by passenger numbers (2011). An award winning airline, ANA was named 2013 ' Airline of the Year' by Air Transport World and was recently awarded the SKYTRAX 5-Star rating in recognition of the airline being at the forefront of product and service delivery.

Working with Japanese IT solutions provider Nihon Unisys, Limited (NUL), ANA migrated its core business systems for booking, ticketing and boarding, to its new systems based on Unisys AirCore in February 2013. The Unisys AirCore solution, which is based on open industry standards, replaces the airline's previous proprietary domestic passenger system that had operated for 34 years.

"AirCore's open system provides ANA with the flexibility to offer new services and more convenient booking and boarding procedures to customers, while reducing the total cost of ownership," said Takanori Yukishige, Senior Vice President, Innovation and IT Strategy, ANA. 

The Unisys AirCore solution is designed to help airlines offer customers innovative new services in response to customer's changing needs and preferences. Built as a modular suite of next-generation applications engineered in the Java programming language, the Unisys AirCore solution provides an open standards environment that enables an airline to choose the alliances, partnerships and distribution channels that best suit its own business strategies.

Despite the magnitude of moving the airline's mission-critical systems from one platform to another, ANA and Nihon Unisys completed the migration to the new system in just four and half hours. Importantly, ANA flight operations continued as usual during the migration so that services to ANA's customers were not disrupted.
