Therefore, if thousands of people use the aero- planes on a daily basis to travel from one placeto another. Don¶t you think there should be a system to help this user¶s book flight, reserve seat, pay for flight, at their homes or at the airport?
efinitely yes. There should be because in a business environment customers come first, then the profits, it is obvious airline industries makes million of dollars on a daily basis from customers,so why not improve the market into a more technical oriented one. That is when airlinereservation system came into existence. Users can reserve seat, book flight and set the date if their departure and arrival using a global distributed system called the internet. These airlineindustries have website whereby users can reserve and book for flights with ease, despite thegeographical area, country or spoken language.Before now Airline Reservation system used to be a standalone system, where by each airlinehas its own system disconnected from ticket agency or other operating airlines. But because of the Airline
eregulation period which occurred in the 1978 which theme was based on theimportance of computerized airline reservation system and their accessibility travel agency wasable to purchase reservation systems such as Airline reservation system.

The Next booking systems were developed in the year 1953 by a Trans- Canada airline, thisTrans ±Canada Airlines developed a computer based system with remote terminals thateventually took over operations in 1953.In the same year that the Trans Canada company developed their computer based system , theAmerican Airlines worked closely with IBM to develop an improved system and the AirlineReservation System (ARS) and the semi- Automated Business Research System ( SABRE),which was lunched thereafter in 1960.The development ARS was completed in 1964 and has been recognized as the largest data processing system in existence.
rom the 1960¶s to 1970¶s Airline Industries invented a lot on research on how to improve theAirline Reservation System any towards the end of the 1970¶s Airlines have been able to owntheir private Airline Reservation System. The United Airlines were responsible for thedevelopment of the Apollo Reservation system and shortly after the development of the ApolloReservation system travel agents were given access to make the use of the system. Nevertheless several airlines started developing their own systems,
elta Airlines Lunched the
elta Automated Travel Account Systems (
ATAS) in 1968, United Airlines and Tran¶s worldAirlines followed in 1971 with the Apollo Reservation system and Programmed AirlineReservation System (PARS). Later on travels agents began pushing for a system that couldautomate their side of the princess by accessing the Airline Reservation System directly to makereservations.Because of the assessment of the Travel to agent to make reservation directly the Airlineindustry provided an Airline deregulation rule, this Airline deregulation occurred in the year 1978, it deals with the magnifying the importance of the computerized airline reservationsystems and their accessibility.The main purpose of the 1978 Airline
eregulation Act in the U.S was to eliminate governmentcontrol over commercial aviation and ensure competitive behavior and fair business practices inthe Airline Industry.
