Landmark achievement recognizes leadership in the emerging standard
MINNEAPOLIS; 06 March 2019
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 fulfilment 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.”
