Airfare Price

International and domestic pricing for all airlines and GDSs in all markets


The ability to accurately price and display itineraries is a fundamental part of your sales process.

With SITA Airfare Price airlines and global distribution systems (GDSs) can quickly manage large volumes of pricing requests. Using automated rules and tax processing, it accurately and quickly prices net fares, market fares and private fares to ensure that the correct fare is applied to each journey from a simple one-way to a multi-segment trip. With Airfare Price you can unbundle your current fares, increase revenues through ancillary services, or modify itineraries.

Airfare Price comes fully integrated into the SITA Reservations hosting platform. It can also be fully integrated into third-party reservation systems.

Airfare Price provides a suite of options that supports the full airline and GDS fares process, providing the information and interfaces necessary to support call centers, ticket offices and on-line sales environments.


  • Automated Baggage Rules – ensures the proper application of baggage allowances and collection of bag charges by airlines and interline partners
  • Airfare RepriceRefund – automates complex ticket reissuance and refunding
  • Horizon® Service Fees – support merchandising by enabling airlines to offer,  price, collect payment for and fulfill unbundled optional services such as baggage fees, lounge passes, meals, insurance and more
