Hitit has completed the first half of 2018 with a new airline partner, after Afghanistan’s Kam Air completed the migration process of its core systems and started to use the aviation IT company’s solution suite Crane.
The carrier operates both scheduled and charter flights domestically and regionally. Founded in 2003, it flies to domestic and other destinations in the Middle East from its main hub in Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport. The current fleet consists of four Boeing 737s, three Airbus A340s, two MD 87s, one B767 and one MD 82.
As a new partner of Hitit, Kam Air has started to use the suite which includes solutions for passenger reservation (Crane PAX), departure control (Crane DCS), schedule planning (Crane SP), operations control (Crane OCC), internet booking engine (Crane IBE), crew management (Crane Crew) and business performance monitoring (Crane BPI), Loyalty Layer (Crane LL), and Costumer Care Layer (Crane CCL).
The airline’s chief commercial officer, Akash Raj, said: “Being a widely recognised and respected IT company in the aviation industry, we believe Hitit is the ideal solution for us to validate our vision to expand, grow and share our Afghan hospitality with more passengers from around the world.”
Hitit has processed more than 50 billion flight queries and 65 million passengers through its systems worldwide so far. It’s chief marketing officer, Nevra Onursal Karaagac, commented: “We are more than happy to support Kam Air with innovative technology solutions in order to enhance quality and reliability in Afghanistan’s aviation infrastructure. Kam Air is our first partner from Afghanistan, so this partnership is very valuable to us. Also, as it is our fourth partnership in Central Asia, this business relationship clearly demonstrates our intention and will to expand throughout the market in Asia.”
Karaagac added that using the Crane platform meant Kam Air would gain access to more than 70,000 agencies worldwide and process all its operations harmoniously.
