ATPCO announced it has purchased SITA’s fare management system, Airfare Insight (AFI). The deal enables product consolidation with the integration of AFI into Architect, ATPCO’s new pricing tool. Both companies have committed to supporting airlines during the migration period, which will see SITA customers adopting Architect. The deal was struck after both companies jointly reviewed their respective offerings and future development programs and agreed, given the challenges airlines are facing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it was the right time to optimize industry investments and consolidate systems. The majority of AFI customers – including Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, and Xiamen Air – agreed to the transfer prior to the deal closing on Jan. 1, 2021. SITA will continue to operate AFI in 2021, while ATPCO and SITA collaborate with airlines on a timeline for the transition to Architect, enabling a smooth handover. The companies will also work together on knowledge transfers throughout 2021, leveraging their combined expertise in pricing tools for the benefit of the industry.
