How it helps

Why should airlines care about competitive pricing? There’s one simple reason – price is paramount in the fiercely competitive airfare marketplace. Even a relatively minor price difference can result in a major loss of market share. And since pricing has a direct impact on revenue and profits, the ability to make rapid changes to fares in response to the market is critical.

Horizon Fares Management provides up-to-the-minute information so you can react quickly to fluctuations in the market. It also removes the analytical headaches caused by incomplete or inaccurate information.

Key features

  • Single master database of current, historical and key competitor fares
  • Once-only data entry for all airline departments
  • Integrated public and internet fare monitoring and analysis
  • Industry distribution of fares and rules to the market
  • Distributed workflow simplifies and standardizes each stage of the process


  • Responds faster - provides up-to-the-minute information so you can react quickly to fluctuations in the market
  • Increases yield – tracks competitor’s pricing and spots opportunities to raise fares
  • Decreases time to market for key fares and improves the speed and quality of decision-making
  • Automates competitor analysis and distributes updated fares to ATPCO and online booking engines

Why us?

The fares marketplace is particularly dynamic. There are millions of fares on offer and hundreds of thousands of them could change in a single day. Airlines that are slow to react can find their prices uncompetitive and lost revenue can quickly add up. 

SITA’s Horizon Fares Management is the industry’s most comprehensive fares management solution.

Airfare Insight is unique in its ability to automate the end-to-end fares management process. Airfare Distribution enables both direct and indirect sales channels from a single system. Used together, you can be sure your airline is distributing the right fare at the right time to the right customer.
