Airline IT Trends Survey

The survey captures emerging trends and tracks the progress of well established ones. This year is no exception: the 2009 Airline IT Trends Survey includes new questions to gain an understanding of how current global cost management pressures are influencing IT strategy as well as how airlines are using or planning to use mobile-based services to better facilitate passenger operations. At the same time, the survey continues to track the evolution of IT budgets, passenger services and travel distribution.

  • CW+ Roundtable: IT fights back to deliver business-related benefits

    There is no question that the past two financial years have been tough – IT budgets have been cut and IT managers have been under pressure to deliver more for less. But attitudes are changing, things are looking up and there’s a renewed sense of optimism within IT departments.


    For many organisations, there has been a shift in focus. More and more companies are looking to switch from their legacy service desk systems and are focusing on standardising systems globally.


    The move is about convergence and going back to basics, with an increased focus on providing IT operational excellence with existing solutions, rather than a drive to add more products, features and functionality.
