Emirates is now 100pc e-ticket enabled
Emirates airline is 100 per cent e-ticket enabled across all of its online destinations, a feat achieved weeks ahead of IATA’s June 1 deadline, according to a statement from the airline.
Emirates also recently concluded its 100th interline e-ticketing agreement, meaning the airline’s e-ticketing product is now even more widely available to more passengers.
In addition, Emirates e-tickets are being issued by 10 global distribution systems (GDS) and travel agent systems that span across 70 BSP (IATA billing settlement plan) global markets.
This achievement is no mean feat given the span of Emirates' route network, and the complexity of its global operations which includes markets that have poor technology infrastructure, said the statement.
Keith Longstaff, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president, Commercial Operations Worldwide, said, "We are pleased to have fully achieved e-ticketing across our online operations ahead of IATA's deadline, and to have concluded this process with over 100 of our interline partners. Emirates has a dedicated team focussed on rolling it out across all of our global network. It has been a huge undertaking not only because our network was continually expanding, but also because of the complexity of our operations.
