ISTANBUL, October 11, 2017 – Hitit CS is expanding its customer portfolio in Europe. Today a new partnership agreement has been signed by Hitit and French carrier Chalair Aviation. After several customer gains in Asia and Africa, Chalair is the seventh new customer of Hitit in a year. Chalair refers to APG Airline which is powered by APG Network which is one of the world’s major general sales agents and service providers for airlines.

Hitit continues to grow in the market of travel and airline IT solutions. The partnership between Hitit and Chalair is a new example for Hitit’s acceleration in the European aviation region. Chalair based in Caen Carpiquet Airport in France operates since 1986 and today operates 140 flights per week with its fleet of Beechcraft and ATR aircraft type. The airline will make use of Hitit’s systems for passenger reservation Crane PAX, departure control Crane DCS and revenue accounting Crane RA.

In pursuance of the agreement, Chalair will distribute and deliver passenger services with Crane PAX, the innovative passenger service system. In addition, Chalair will implement fast and effective check-in experience by using Crane DCS, a web based departure control system. The airline will also consolidate and process all sales to calculate financial figures for interline billing and accounting with Crane RA, Hitit’s end-to-end revenue accounting system.

Chalair Airlines President Alain Battisti declared “Hitit has been introduced to us by APG Airlines. They have implemented Crane and we have been very happy with their professional attitude during the entire implementation process. Our strength comes from expertise in providing privileged and tailor-made services on niche markets, from our 30 years of experience, and from our close partnership with Air France I truly believe that we will maximize our service quality in an effective way with Hitit.”

Hitit CEO Nur Gokman said “The partnership with APG and Chalair is very important for us. I have great faith in our relationship with Chalair. The airline became our partner because of the recommendation of APG. In the name of Hitit, I would like to thank APG Network for the groundwork of the partnership. I believe we will be growing together in the years to come.”

The partnership between Hitit and Chalair has been supported by APG Network, one of the world’s major general sales agents and service providers for airlines. APG Network, serving more than 200 airlines on six continents, has introduced its own airline company APG Airlines with Hitit’s solutions last year. APG Airlines used Crane PAX technology to sell interlining tickets of other carriers over the biggest GDS.

Founded in 1994, Hitit CS is a provider of new generation airline, airport and travel industry software products and services that support the most complicated and demanding needs of fast growing industry players. While Crane PAX/DCS address reservation, ticketing, check-in, departure control and loyalty management needs, Crane RA, Crane CA, Crane SP, Crane OCC, Crane CREW and Crane ALM address, respectively, revenue accounting, cost accounting, schedule planning, operation control, crew management and tour operator/charter management services. Renowned for its close partnership with its customers, Hitit receives excellent reception for its products and services as well as its excellent customer care.
