DATALEX AT A GLANCE

The Datalex Digital Commerce platform allows our airline customers to optimise the retailing of offers (product, price, promotion) and to complete retail transactions from start to finish across all digital sales channels. These two capabilities represent a significant evolution for airlines in an industry that was designed for a single product (the airline ticket) and a single channel (the travel agency). 

The Datalex Digital Commerce Platform allows the airline to increase the range and scale of products and services they can offer to passengers across an increasingly digital marketplace.
