Regional air carrier FLY91 is looking to IBS Software to power its “mission to make air travel accessible to travellers across India”. In its bid to provide an air alternative to road and rail travel across underserved routes, the carrier has had IBS create a reservation experience designed to be simple, efficient and cost-effective experience.

By implementing IBS Software’s modern omni-channel iFly Res commerce platform, FLY91 hopes to deliver real-time dynamic and personalised pricing capabilities to ensure pricing is competitive with alternative modes of transport.

Additionally, access to this API-driven ecosystem gives FLY91 the ability to open its services and routes connecting tier 2 (population of 50,000 to 100,000) and tier 3 (population of 20,000 to 50,000) cities across India to interline partners, providing international and domestic airlines with a solution to last-mile coverage to smaller destinations that are traditionally poorly or underserved by existing carriers.

Prasanna Subramaniam, CTO at FLY91, commented: “At FLY91 we are striving to deliver comfortable, reliable and affordable flights for everyone in India, opening up new travel opportunities to cities that have been underserved in the past. Delivering a simple and slick reservation experience will be a critical part of our success as we look to inspire a new demographic of air passengers.”

Founded by industry veterans including CEO Manoj Chacko, who has earlier worked in senior leadership roles at Emirates Airlines, Kingfisher Airlines, American Express, SOTC and WNS, FLY91 has already secured its first set of routes under the government’s Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) UDAN, which intends to put scheduled passenger services into at least 50 unserved regional airports and roll out approximately 1,000 new regional routes. FLY91, which started commercial operations on March 18, 2024, will operate a fleet of turboprop ATR 72-600 aircraft from its home base of Goa’s Manohar International Airport.
