AirKiosk Systems
Our primary business is the AirKiosk system and ASP service, the only travel distribution solution designed for the Internet. The AirKiosk system has functions equal to those of legacy IBM TPF- and Unisys USAS-based mainframe reservations systems, with the added advantages of integrated eCommerce and Revenue Management applications.

The AirKiosk system is the foundation for the AirKiosk Travel Network, an alternate CRS which will allow AirKiosk system users to directly participate in global distribution without the expense of legacy GDS and network fees.

Consulting Services
Custom consulting and development services are now a secondary activity at Sutra. Over the years we have advised such companies as Sabre, Worldspan, Atraxis, ARINC and Perot Systems on new technologies and travel distribution strategies, and provided key development staff to companies such as Lufthansa Consulting and Korean Airlines.
