Happy 3rd Birthday, Matchmaker
The StB Matchmaker celebrated its third birthday this year on February 14. The tool now hosts Fast Travel in addition to BCBP, and will include BIP and IATA e-services in 2011. It has become an acknowledged platform for the industry, now counting over 230 airlines, 700 airports, and a mix of over 1000 users.
The tool enables airlines to plan their StB implementation with partner airports, track progress, and prioritize projects according to existing and future airport capability. It enables airports to keep track of these implementations as well as sharing information through a central web platform. This process enables better communication with industry partners which can generate savings on equipment, maximize use of terminal capacity, and better customer service.
