Flying is easy, isn't it? You are used to catching planes to fly all around the world. Check in, print your boarding passes, drop your bags, go through the security, then board the plane... it's no rocket science.

Is it really that simple? Do you really know how it works behind the scenes? How does the airline make sure you paid what you owed before letting you on-board, how do they know you will make it on-time when they let you check-in, if the country where you land will let you go through? How do they know for sure who has boarded and who has not? When the flight is overbooked, how do they decide who gets accepted, who should be proposed money to volunteer to take the next one, and who will not be accepted at all?

This is a very complex business, always changing, where any mistake can severely damage the airline reputation and business, and where all airlines have their set of specificities that we need to accommodate.

We are managing the world leading airline Passenger Servicing System - a system that provides check-in and boarding services to approximately 125 airlines and 1 billion passengers each year.
