Vietjet Airlines international network live with iPort

05 Sep 2019

In name of the entire VJ-iPort project team, we’re proud to announce that this week we’ve completed the roll-out of all international airports/terminals according initial planning!

 

VietJet is now handled in iPort in:

  • Vietnam (international terminals): SGN, HAN, DAD & CXR

  • Thailand: BKK, HKT & CNX

  • Taiwan: TPE, RMQ & KHH

  • Japan: NRT & KIX

  • Myanmar: RGN

  • Korea: ICN

  • Singapore: SIN

  • Malaysia: KUL

  • Hong Kong: HKG

  • Indonesia: DPS

It’s a great milestone in the project and a perfect preparation to activate self-service check-in (web, mobile & kiosk) for VietJet on the entire international network. This is now possible.

 

But let’s focus first on our next big challenge: getting the domestic operations live with iPort!

 

Thanks to all involved to make this happen.

RECORD GROWTH FOR iPORT DCS, WITH 54% MORE PASSENGERS HANDLED IN THE FIRST HALF OF 2018

01 Jul 2018

The first half of 2018 has been an incredible success for Res2 and their iPort DCS application. Compared to the first 6 months of 2017, Res2 measured an increase in passenger volume of 54%. This growth was achieved largely by signing 22 new customers who chose iPort DCS as a replacement for the axsControl DCS. This was combined with the volume of 7 other new customers. Not to forget that the vast majority of Res2’s customers grow faster than the market, which further contributes to the success of iPort DCS. Res2 forecasts a growth of 65% for the full year 2018.

 

In relation to airport activity, iPort DCS has been used in more than 250 airports worldwide since January this year. 57% of those airports are located in Europe, while the Middle East and North America share second place with 12% each of the airports where iPort DCS is used. The final 46 airports are spread over Africa, Latin America and Asia.

MORE THAN 80% OF FORMER AXSCONTROL CUSTOMERS NOW SELECT IPORT DCS

19 Feb 2018

The Dutch ground handling software provider, Res2, is going full steam ahead with the implementation of their iPort DCS at an additional 50 airports in Europe and its broader surroundings. These implementations are the result of the sunset of the axsControl DCS, provided by DXC Technology (formerly HPE, EDS and Atraxis). The vast majority, i.e. more than 80%, have already decided that the iPort DCS is the best solution to replace their current system.

 

iPort DCS is recognized to be the best solution for Ground Handlers because it easily handles various types of airlines simultaneously. For example, the system provides functionality for quick and easy flight creation, PNL modification and a widespread AHM database for charter flights. For full service carriers, iPort DCS comes with online e-ticket and IATCI connection capabilities.

 

Thanks to the efficient architectural set up, Res2 can offer the implementation of this extensive application in a minimum timespan at extremely low costs. Note that all 50 airports will be implemented by March 31st 2018, when axsControl will be decommissioned. Bern Airport was the first airport to go live in December 2017, merely 6 weeks after reaching an agreement. This included both local installation and training of the staff. Ground handlers Havas Turkey, Aviaserve Malta, Interavia Ukraine, Flughafen Graz, TAV Macedonia, TAV Tunisie, Vienna Airport Handling, Airports of Montenegro, Sarajevo Airport, Dortmund Airport, Flughafen Paderborn, Lodz Airport, Lublin Airport, MZLZ Zagreb Airport, Salzburg Airport, Air Rep Services Gambia, Olsztyn-Mazury Airport and Tirana Airport followed shortly thereafter.

Boston, Baltimore, London Gatwick, Copenhagen, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Dublin, Amsterdam, and Berlin Schoenefeld were all activated during or around the weekend of the 31st of January. All these airports are used in the WOW ‘hub operation’ which requires a smooth connection and integration of all involved airports.

During this period, Tenerife, Las Palmas, Alicante, Warsaw, Barcelona, Montreal, Toronto, Bristol, Stockholm, Lyon, Nice, Frankfurt, Vilnius, Milan Malpensa, Duesseldorf, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Rome and on the 17th of July Edinburgh were all activated according to plan.

 

Both WOW air and Res2 are proud of this achievement. A smooth operation is crucial for a fast growing airline such as WOW air.
