Istanbul - Bandar Seri Begawan, 23 March 2022 - Royal Brunei Airlines, the national airline of Brunei Darussalam has moved to Hitit's IT solutions. After a comprehensive process of training, testing and configuration, Royal Brunei switched to Hitit's Crane Airline Solution Suite on March 16, 2022. Royal Brunei, which is listed among the top 10 most popular airlines globally by the independent research institution Skytrax, will be partnering with Hitit for the next 10 years.
Hitit's Crane Airline Solution Suite now provides Royal Brunei with its core passenger service systems, an upgraded internet booking engine and mobile application, and supporting solutions covering airport operations, airline loyalty, and customer care until 2031.
