The integration will help airline revenue managers be better prepared to deal with NDC and easily understand fare breakup and price more accurately
London, September 18, 2019 : RateGain Technologies, today announced that its real-time airline pricing intelligence solution, AirGain will now be able to provide apple to apple mapping of rates for Airlines. This new feature will help airline revenue managers easily understand the break up of each price point by giving visibility into fare components such as tax breakup, FBC rules, fare family and other ancilliary components helping them execute a more competitive pricing strategy.
As more airlines move to adopt the NDC, Airlines need to get intelligence that helps them make better decisions and compete effecitvely. Today, 90% of the airlines have to rely on intelligence delivered through APIs with little knowledge of its recency, increasing the risk substantially while building the pricing strategy for their airline.
According to Apurva Chamaria, Chief Revenue Officer, RateGain, “Airlines have been working with limited intelligence for years to take pricing decisions based on intuition and their past knowledge of the market. However, as ancilliary takes center stage, we cannot ignore that airline fares have multiple components which are volatile to market fluctuations impacting the total fare. We wanted airline revenue managers to have the power to be able to drill down to the actual price of the seat and track any fluctuations in the fare components giving them more control than ever before and helping them become future ready in the era of NDC.”
