Discovering new revenue streams and growing revenue is essential for today’s thriving airline. Therefore, airlines must continually implement the latest technology to support these goals and maintain a competitive edge. Game-changing revenue-optimization technology is now available that enables airlines to leverage every revenue opportunity, leaving nothing on the table.  

Revenue-management systems are used to determine the optimal availability and price of a seat at any given point in time. The information required to make this decision depends on a number of factors, not all of which have traditionally been available.

The revenue-management paradigm shift demands a holistic, 360-degree approach to forecasting, analyzing and optimizing all revenue streams to help an airline maximize revenues and boost profitability. It also demands breaking down traditional departmental, data, systems and process silos that are still prevalent today at most airlines. In essence, carriers must become better retailers. In doing so, they will begin to understand the principles and value of total revenue optimization.
