||EY – Etihad|

And especially Montenegro Airlines, as it has become the 1st EMD capable airline within the Balkans.
“I am very pleased to report that the industry reached a critical mass of 40 airlines, which represents 33.6% of airline passenger worldwide volumes” stated Sebastien Touraine, e-services Project Manager.
IATA e-services aims to facilitate ancillary revenue sales through all distribution channels by using the IATA EMD standard. EMD is the latest and final step towards IATA’s e-travel vision following the full implementation of e-ticketing (ET in 2008) and Bar Coded Boarding Passes (BCBP in 2010).
