Staff Travel Management

Managing airline staff travel is not only challenging, but also carries significant operating costs. Typically it is manpower intensive and involves long processing time. Complications compound when the staff travel application is de-centralized, as is the case with most large airlines, or when travel polices change. However, no airline can tend to lose its focus on effectively managing staff travel as free/discounted travel is a key element in the employee motivation and retention strategy.

A simplified, self-serviced online environment with 'booking anytime from anywhere' facility will lead to significant reduction in work load, transaction cycle time and administrative costs. IBS' Staff Travel Management Solution, iFly Staff, removes airlines’ bottlenecks in managing staff travel while observing automatic compliance to Staff Travel policy of individual airlines. In fact, the solution is increasingly being seen by airlines as a tool not only to save time and cost but also to improve load factor and optimize revenue.
