TravelSky Extends Commitment to Unisys Server Technology

SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TravelSky, the leading provider of information technology solutions for China’s air travel and tourism industry, has renewed its commitment to Unisys (NYSE:UIS) server technology, extending licences with Unisys China for the Unisys ClearPath Dorado Model 280 mainframe solution through December 2011. The renewal agreement was signed in the first quarter of 2009.

TravelSky has been a Unisys customer for more than 25 years.

The TravelSky Technology unit operates the reservations and departure control systems for China's air carriers, and also maintains the global distribution system for China’s travel agencies. TravelSky's infrastructure - supported by Unisys ClearPath Dorado mainframe servers - processes more than 200 million passengers a year in a rapidly growing travel market.

The two ClearPath Dorado Model 280 servers at the heart of TravelSky's infrastructure are deployed as part of a Unisys Extended Transaction Capacity (XTC) cluster with a Unisys ClearPath Dorado Model 380 to offer higher levels of power, availability, manageability and responsiveness to dynamic changes in business requirements.

“The Unisys ClearPath Dorado servers combined with the XTC clustering technology enable TravelSky’s systems to process more transactions – such as reservations and load calculations critical to flight safety – more quickly and securely. This supports our aim to make TravelSky one of the most reliable travel systems in the world while satisfying the ever-increasing growth of China’s aviation market,” said TravelSky vice president, Mr. Rong Gong.

Using the reliable and scalable ClearPath mainframe platform, TravelSky offers the Chinese airline industry a suite of Unisys-developed airline solutions to support a number of mission-critical applications. The solutions include an inventory control system, ticketing distribution system, departure control system and passenger processing services, which Unisys hosts and manages.

“In China’s rapidly growing travel industry, with passenger peaks driven by high-profile, large-scale international events such as the 2008 Olympic Games and 2010 World Expo, the supporting IT infrastructure must have the flexibility to rapidly scale to meet changing demands in logistics, passenger services and other mission-critical applications,” said Geoff Dickson, vice president, Systems and Technology, Unisys Asia Pacific. “Unisys ClearPath servers are designed to help clients like TravelSky transform their data centres to respond quickly and easily to constant change in their business.”

Further demonstrating its commitment to Unisys server technology, TravelSky also uses more than 20 Unisys ES7000 Enterprise Servers equipped with the Unisys Open Message Switching Engine (OMSE) solution. A group of Unisys program managers, software specialists and airline experts works full-time at TravelSky's Beijing offices to support the Unisys technology and TravelSky's requirements.

With more than 45 years experience providing solutions to the Aviation industry, Unisys has built a strong reputation for delivering services, solutions and technologies designed to meet the specific needs of the airlines, airports and related agencies. More than 35 percent of the world’s air cargo is processed by Unisys solutions while 19 of the top 25 airlines – and more than 200 worldwide – rely on Unisys solutions. Asia Pacific aviation industry clients include Beijing Capital International Airport and Guangzhou International Baiyun Airport in China and Delhi International Airport Ltd in India.
