PassionAir begins operations with Hitit’s technology brand Crane

PassionAir is a start-up airline based in Accra, Ghana which began operations in August 2018. The carrier’s quest for an innovative IT system led them to choose the Crane solutions suite from Turkish IT provider Hitit. PassionAir is Hitit’s third new airline partner this year and eighth collaboration in Africa.

PassionAir is operating scheduled flights domestically from its Accra hub to Kumasi, Takoradi and Tamale with three Bombardier Q 400 aircraft. Hitit’s mobile App will have strategic values for PassionAir as more than 400 million people across West Africa now subscribe to mobile services, with the number expected to grow to 725 million by 2020. Ghana is one of Africa’s largest mobile markets, with about 34.57 million subscribers and 10.11 million active internet users.

As a new partner of Hitit, the Ghanaian airline has chosen to use the Crane solution suite. This suite includes solutions for passenger reservation (Crane PAX), departure control (Crane DCS), internet booking engine (Crane IBE), mobile App, Loyalty Layer (Crane LL) and Customer Care Layer (Crane CCL). Furthermore, Hitit’s global IT network for airlines will put PassionAir in the position to extend regional flights within the West African sub-region for the medium term, by using interline and codeshare agreements.
