“We are delighted to be a partner to SKY Airline, an airline that has made great progress in the South American market over recent years,” says Simon Grennan, CEO at Planitas. “When we started talking with the SKY Airline commercial team, they knew exactly what they wanted. Planitas SeatMAX is a modern solution that fits their needs. It facilitates airlines who recognise that bringing greater variable and dynamic pricing to their ancillary product offering can significantly help stimulate additional yield in this key revenue stream.”

Planitas’ SeatMAX enables us to price with greater agility at flight level, day of week and even time of day. The implementation process has been smooth, and the solution is easy to use. We are making good revenue progress with it and look forward to it helping us drive our revenues even higher.”
