Air Canada Implements ITA Software’s Faring & Web Technology

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ITA Software, Inc., the leader in developing innovative solutions for the travel industry, today announced that Air Canada is moving forward with the implementation of ITA’s faring and web technology. Air Canada will deploy ITA’s pricing, shopping and web front end modules across multiple online channels, including the airline’s consumer website and travel agency website.

“ITA Software continues to be an important technology and innovation partner for Air Canada, and we are looking forward to the benefits of implementing their technology,” said Lise Fournel, Senior Vice-President, e-Commerce and Chief Information Officer, Air Canada.

In addition, Air Canada will provide testing and domain expertise to ITA as it completes the remaining work on its industry changing Passenger Services System (PSS) solution. Implementation of ITA’s faring and web technology at Air Canada is scheduled for the summer of 2010.

ITA has already established a reputation for delivering the industry’s premier airfare pricing and shopping system, which offers customers advanced shopping features and the deepest and most thoroughly customizable search available.
