Ryu Kwang-hee, CEO, Air Seoul, said, Launching a new airline brings many challenges and it is vital to have strong partners supporting the new operations. SITA brought a depth of industry knowledge and commitment which has proven invaluable. Its Horizon passenger management and distribution system was introduced seamlessly and it is clear that the flexibility of this new generation system will support our growth in the future.

Horizon Passenger Management and Distribution, a GDS-neutral next generation PSS for airlines, is used by more than 100 airlines and ground handlers to board over 131 million passengers each year.

Ilya Gutlin, SITA President, Asia Pacific, said, Air Seoul selected SITA Horizon because of our experience in managing and delivering successful implementations, our knowledge and understanding of the Korean market practices and requirements, and our flexible technology platform which is ideal for a low-cost airline. The successful launch included many tight deadlines but together with the Air Seoul team we made it happen. Our team looks forward to growing the business over the years ahead at this exciting new low-cost carrier in East Asia.
