FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE NEWEST AIRPORT TO CHOOSE THE AIRIT EASE VIRTUALIZED MULTI-SIDED INFRASTRUCTURE TO DELIVER COMMON USE FUNCTIONALITY TO THEIR FACILITY
October 13, 2011, Orlando, FL – Air-Transport IT Services, Inc. (AirIT), a key provider of diversified information technology products and services to the air transportation industry, announced their selection to provide the EASE common use solution to the Montgomery Regional Airport.
AirIT’s common use system, EASE (Extended Airline System Environment), is a cornerstone of the platform that ultimately allows any equipped ticket counter or gate podium to be utilized by any airline operating on the system. The implementation in Montgomery will include full common use functionality to accommodate airlines including, American, Delta and US Airways. Importantly, this project will replace an existing legacy common use system with an airline-friendly alternative that will allow them to utilize their own proprietary business-optimized applications and not require the airlines to develop any new software, as is required by competing common use solutions.
Betros Wakim, AirIT CEO says, “AirIT is proud to be able to deliver technology to airports that foster beneficial partnerships between the airport and their airline tenants. Only the EASE solution can enable airports to create true facility flexibility while simultaneously allowing the airlines to use their own software that supports their distinct business processes. Airports that perform the necessary due diligence on common use options quickly realize that airlines have an overwhelming preference to use their own software, not some feature-limited variant that was the norm in legacy common-use systems. In Montgomery, this fact is borne out by our selection to replace their existing system and deliver true application autonomy back to the airlines.”
The EASE virtualized technology delivers true flexibility and cost savings airports can pass on to their airline partners. Because this contemporary solution allows airlines to operate in their own native system environment, airlines like American, Delta and US Airways will be able to seamlessly use any gate in Montgomery with all of the business capabilities resident in their own proprietary applications.
