India's Jet Airways will manage its interline staff travel with myIDTravel, the integrated ID travel management solution from Lufthansa Systems.
The deal means the carrier complies with the industry mandate of replacing paper ID tickets by April 2012. With this innovative system, Jet Airways employees can avail Lufthansa Systems’ self-service e-ticketing initiative for flights on other airlines, while enabling staff members of its partner airlines to issue e-tickets on Jet Airways.
Lufthansa Systems says myIDTravel is an integrated solution for the efficient management of business and private ID travel. Through e-ticketing, new self-service functions and a high level of automation, airlines can optimize their ID travel management and reduce costs. myIDTravel eliminates the need for paper tickets and enables airlines to replace them with electronic ID tickets for their own and even for interline flights.
"Furthermore, myIDTravel offers advantages for airlines by streamlining processes - from maintaining ID agreements and eligibility rules to revenue accounting and interline settlement. Airline employees also benefit greatly from using myIDTravel because they can conveniently purchase, change, issue and refund electronic tickets for their trips." says the IT provider
