Horizon® Passenger Management & Distribution

GDS neutral next-generation PSS for all airlines

Overview

SITA Horizon® Passenger Management and Distribution offers the most comprehensive range of passenger management services available. Its infrastructure is built on a flexible platform of core systems required by every airline, including reservations, ticketing, inventory, check-in, departure control and weight and balance.

Horizon Passenger Management and Distribution means:

  • Airline controlled
  • Flexible selling
  • Responsive service
  • Agile design

This unique combination of qualities allows airlines to be more creative, and more precise, in the way they personalize, package, target and deliver their offers – via multiple channels, even onboard. Our feature-rich solution is scalable, cost-effective and adaptable enough to provide the building blocks for growing carriers as well as broadening the market reach for well-established ones.

And unlike global distribution service (GDS) providers of passenger services systems (PSS), SITA has no third-party distribution system to protect. Our focus is entirely on the airline’s objectives, which allows them to achieve the ideal distribution channel mix for each customer.

It’s no wonder that more than 120 airline and ground handling  boarding over 134 million passengers each year, rely on Horizon Passenger Management and Distribution.

Horizon Passenger Management and Distribution includes a self-administered code-share package that is unique in the market. It enables you to self-manage configuration, processes, parameters, business rules, workflows and product definitions to make changes and go to market faster without extra cost or delay.
