ANA migrated Unisys PSS application

Unisys Corporation has announced that All Nippon Airways (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).

Working with Japanese IT solutions provider Nihon Unisys, 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.

“Unisys AirCore is the only operational next-generation passenger system for reservations and departure control that is based on open technology and industry standards, allowing airlines to more easily add new applications and integrate with other systems to make them more customer-centric and competitive,” said Olivier Houri, President Global Transportation, Unisys. “We believe Unisys AirCore represents the platform of the future for airline passenger sales and services, giving our clients autonomy, flexibility and distribution control, in line with IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) initiative.”
