Why should airlines care about competitive pricing? There’s one simple reason – price is paramount in the fiercely competitive airfare marketplace. Even a relatively minor price difference can result in a major loss of market share. And since pricing has a direct impact on revenue and profits, the ability to make rapid changes to fares in response to the market is critical.

Horizon Fares Management provides up-to-the-minute information so you can react quickly to fluctuations in the market. It also removes the analytical headaches caused by incomplete or inaccurate information.
