Comair Limited Launches New Reservations System According to BAC Report17 Nov 2011 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – in September Comair Limited announced a soon launch of several useful software solutions from Sabre Airline Solutions’ toolkit.
SabreSonic Customer Sales and Service (CSS) reservations system will help Comair manage its reservations in low-cost kulula.com airlines.
Sabre Sonic CSS suite will manage inventory and check-in systems.
AirVision Marketing and Planning suite will provide planning system that operates pricing, revenue and schedules.
AirCentre Enterprise Operations is a complex system designed to manage crew, flights, airport operations and maintenance. This one is to be implemented in British Airways also.
All these innovations are to help Comair regain profitability. Last year was a difficult one to the company. Despite growing revenues net income declined by 14.2% due to high fuel cost, increased airport charges and idle SA economy. kulula.com has lost its low-cost nature.
Interim results are also not strong. In H1 2011 revenue increased by 4.2% comparing to H2 2010, and amounted to ZAR 1831.1 M. Net income equaled ZAR 24.1 M, 54.4% down from H2 2010. Future outlook is rather cautious. Comair has to be very flexible to reduce or add flights when necessary.
Founded in 1946 and located in SAR, Comair Limited is a South African airline carrier that operates two brands: British Airways and kulula.com. The former is a premium airlines, while the latter is a low-cost option. Comair has about 700 departures a week and operates fleet of 26 jets. Since 1998 Comair trades at Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
