Airlines

In the highly competitive airline industry, the growing need to offer a frictionless travel experience is posing huge challenges to legacy infrastructures. Here’s the good news: Attachmate consistently engineers the most robust and reliable travel-specific software available—and has for more than three decades.

Provide a frictionless travel experience:


Connect to multiple hosts

Enable employees and customers to communicate with any major GDS, including Amadeus, Worldspan, Apollo/Galileo, HP Shares, and Sabre, as well as any MATIP-based reservation system. Certified for CUTE/CUPPS environments, our solutions offer secure, persistent, and reliable access to TPF, Unisys, UNIX/VMS, and IBM hosts from any web or Windows desktop.

Reduce errors and boost productivity

Gain all the productivity-enhancing benefits that come with Microsoft Office. Users can create emails, notes, tasks, and appointments—and even launch Word directly—all from within an emulation session. They can also take advantage of AutoComplete, AutoExpand, Spell Check, Scratch Pad, and Recent Typing to save thousands of keystrokes every day.


Print data from any host to any peripheral device

Put your printing device of choice to work outputting boarding passes, luggage tags, tickets, and documents. Support not only shared printers and host devices but also intelligent card readers, specialized ticket printers, and point-of-sale terminals. Our flexible print delivery software prints data from virtually any host to any peripheral device, regardless of communication protocol.


Streamline development efforts

Use robust development tools to create brand new workflows, processes, and experiences for employees, partners, and customers. Put a fresh face on legacy apps, rewrite them to add functionality, build custom web apps, or do anything in between. There’s no need to change legacy host code or modify airline information systems in the process.
