Air India that operates a fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft serving Asia, Europe and North America has now decided to install FTS ( Fire Tracking System) in order to monitor and compare various basic fares, taxes and other charges made by airlines.
Besides tracking changes in fares, surcharges, taxes made by its competitors on various sectors, the system would also generate alerts every 6 hours. The system, once implemented, will be available at around 45 locations/access IDs. FTS will also maintain database of historic fare/surcharge/taxes offered/changes made, going back past 2 years.
Air India recently invited tenders from interested FTS suppliers to install the system. Meanwhile, National Aviation Company of India Limited (NACIL), which operates Air India, aims to empower its headquarters, regional office, 6 bases in India and all international stations with access to the FTS.
NACIL currently operates across 93 destinations in India and overseas with an annual passenger carriage of more than 12-million. Air India, the 16th largest airline in Asia serves a total of 11 domestic destinations and 18 international destinations. The carrier has 2 major domestic hubs at Delhi and Mumbai respectively and one international hub at Frankfurt.
