The carrier is set to move onto the system in early 2014 and is an extension of its series of online services including using iPads with customers. The tool, named Amadeus Passenger Revenue Accounting, enables the carrier to make revenue decisions more quickly by offering real-time and mainly automated data.
“The removal of paper documents from the passenger distribution process provides the opportunity to bring revenue accounting closer to the operational functions. We have been looking for a passenger revenue accounting system that takes maximum advantage of this opportunity, and the solution agreed will be delivered in partnership with Amadeus,” said Gyorgyi Szantner, head of finance services at British Airways.
“We believe it will enable us to transform passenger revenue accounting from a ‘back office’ function to a ‘front-end’ activity, providing real time visibility across the airline including our operational colleagues on how well the airline is performing.”
