Asiana airlines of South Korea extends Sirax/RA agreement for another five years
Lufthansa Systems today announced that Korea-based Asiana Airlines will continue to use its Sirax/RA solution for revenue accounting. The agreement between the two companies, which was originally signed in 2005, has now been renewed for another five years.
“We have been relying on Sirax/RA from Lufthansa Systems for more than ten years – which makes perfect sense for us: Since introducing the solution, we succeeded in substantially accelerating our accounting processes, which enabled us to reduce costs and boost revenues at the same time,” said Lee Han Wook, General Manager Revenue Accounting Team at Asiana Airlines.
The Sirax/RA revenue accounting solution speeds up accounting processes by automatically checking ticket sales against actual flight data. Integrated sub-processes also support the billing of interline flights between airlines. Based on this, the system very precisely calculates the actual revenues within a very short timeframe, automatically taking into account current industry standards. Furthermore, customers can quickly gain a comprehensive overview of their financial situation, enabling them to rapidly respond to changing conditions. The system also delivers precise, current information for management and accounting staff at all times. Sirax/RA is being used by around 20 airlines worldwide and based on processed coupon volume is the market leader among standard revenue accounting solutions.
“Asiana Airlines was one of the initial carriers to opt for our Sirax solution and the second Sirax customer in the Star Alliance after Lufthansa,” said Tom Vandendael, Senior Vice President Regional Management Asia-Pacific at Lufthansa Systems. “Even after such a long time, Asiana Airlines remains a strategically important customer for Lufthansa Systems, and we look forward to our continued collaboration.”
Korean carrier Asiana Airlines is based in Seoul and is a member of the Star Alliance. With its fleet of 84 aircraft, Asiana Airlines transports both passengers and cargo worldwide. The airline currently serves ten domestic routes and 79 international destinations in 23 countries. Asiana Airlines also delivers cargo to 28 cities in 12 countries.
