Malaysia Airlines marks first e-ticketing rollout in Myanmar

01/12/2009 13:37

Abacus International, Asia Pacific’s leading revenue partner for airlines, has announced that it will be the first GDS to exclusively launch electronic ticketing with Malaysia Airlines in Myanmar through its unique Abacus electronic transitional automated ticketing platform (eTAT).

This means that as of today, authorised travel agents in Myanmar will be able to issue electronic tickets on behalf of Malaysia Airlines, hence enabling tremendous improvements in the efficiency of their sales and ticketing process. This highly anticipated initiative comes hot on the heels of Abacus’ successful rollout of eTAT with Bangkok Airways in Myanmar in September 2009 which led the way as the first such partnership between Bangkok Airways and a GDS in Myanmar, and is testament to the strong partnership between Abacus and Malaysia Airlines.

This development also represents the addition of the latest carrier in a growing list of airlines that have already or are planning to adopt the Abacus eTAT platform. This includes Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, EVA Air, Bangkok Airways and Vietnam Airlines.  The eTAT solution is currently being deployed in Brunei, China, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Laos, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines and Vietnam.
