The IET Hub supports all the technological requirements of airlines and is able to transfer electronic data from one airline to another by translating all forms of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) software. This translation process eliminates the important developments that were previously necessary for airlines to establish an interline link between airlines. “I think airlines are going to sign up,” said Henry Harteveldt, an analyst at Forrester Research Inc. based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “This is a technological and financially efficient offering, especially for medium- and small-sized airlines, which cannot afford to develop their own interline solutions.” Until now, each airline`s IET route has been unique and tailor-made for each partner airline. There is also a need for them to continue to develop codeshare partnerships, resulting in travel arrangements involving more and more multiple airlines. Interline agreements between airlines allow passengers to use an e-ticket if their itinerary includes travel with two or more airlines. These agreements also help to facilitate the transfer of flight coupons to other flights of other airlines in the event of abnormal operation due to disruptions. . . .
