Japan Airlines Deploys PROS Revenue Management Solution

HOUSTON, Dec. 22, 2014 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, today announced Japan Airlines (JAL) has fully deployed PROS Origin and Destination® (O&D) revenue management solution to enhance its demand forecasting and price-mix optimization capabilities for its global business.

Headquartered in Tokyo, JAL is one of the world’s premier carriers and a member of the oneworld® alliance. With more than 31,000 employees globally, the airline operates major hubs in Tokyo, Haneda and Narita, servicing almost 280 airports across 45 countries and regions.

JAL has implemented PROS O&D, which helps optimize its revenue through data-driven forecasting techniques and network optimization. With PROS O&D, JAL has replaced its previously separate domestic and international revenue management solutions, and consolidated them into a single solution, providing proactive visibility into its overall network revenue and ensuring execution of its business strategies.

PROS O&D uses data science to manage market demand challenges; capture emerging trends at varying levels of significance by region, market, flight and date; and differentiate price and availability for passengers, which allows JAL to make pricing decisions for its business.

“As we explored how to maximize our domestic and international integrated network revenue, we recognized PROS as the best partner, providing us with its O&D network solution for revenue optimization,” said Akira Yonezawa, Executive Officer, Managing Division, International Route Marketing, at Japan Airlines. “We knew this solution would ensure we provide our customers with flight options that meet their individual needs.”

“For years, Japan Airlines has had two different revenue management solutions for domestic and international markets,” said Tadao Nishio, Executive Officer, Managing Division, Domestic Route Marketing, at Japan Airlines. “We decided to integrate our RM platform into one, fusing our competitive domestic and international platforms to maximize network-level revenue. PROS O&D will enable us to achieve our strategic goal.”

“With today’s dynamic global travel market, airlines are searching for new opportunities to transform their business with new technologies that help them outperform,” said PROS Travel President Benson Yuen. “We are honored to have been chosen by Japan Airlines to implement our revenue management solutions to maximize its revenue goals and to enhance this world-class airline’s customer experience.”
