INTRODUCTION

Earlier, the Airline Reservation Systems (ARS) used to be standalonesystems. Each airline had its own system, disconnected from other airlines orticket agents, and usable only by a designated number of airline employees.Travel agents in the 1970s pushed for access to the airlines' systems. Today, airtravel information is linked, stored, and retrieved by a network of ComputerReservations Systems (CRS), accessible by multiple airlines and travel agents. Theglobal distribution system (GDS) makes for an even larger web of airlineinformation, not only merging the buying and selling of tickets for multipleairlines, but also making the systems accessible to consumers directly. GDSportals and gateways on the Web allow consumers to purchase tickets directly,select seats, and even book hotels and rental cars. Airline Reservation System(ARS) in conjunction with Global Distribution System (GDS) has led to ease of airline ticketing, flight scheduling and also provided a means for customers toaccess and book flights from their homes. It has also increased the speed withwhich information about customers are retrieved and handled for flightscheduling tasks.

Airline Reservation System

(ARS) is a computerized system used to storeand retrieve information and conduct transactions related to air travel. Thesystems was originally designed and operated by airlines, but were later extendedfor the use of travel agencies. Major ARS operations that book and sell tickets formultiple airlines are known as

Modern GDSestypically allow users to book hotel rooms and rental cars as well as airline tickets.It is obvious that everything that is sustainable

Scope of the System:

This Project is not only restricted to Computer Reservation Systems (ARSes), butalso other systems dedicated to the optimal performance in the airline industry;airline agencies and their customers inclusive. The outcome of this study willprovide a basis for developing the appropriate approach to the problemsassociated with air travelling operations in relation to Airline ReservationSystems. This presentation will be beneficial to all those who make use of AirlineReservation Systems (ATRSs), flight operators, air travelling operators, travelagents and airline agencies.The project is aimed at exposing the relevance and importance of AirlineReservation Systems (ARS). It is projected towards enhancing the relationshipbetween customers and airline agencies through the use of ARSs, thereby easingthe flight ticketing and selling process and all air traveling operations.

Need of Airlines system

A few factors that direct us to develop a new system are given below -:1) Faster System2) Accuracy3) Reliability4) Informative5) Reservations and cancellations from anywhere to any place
