“We continue to grow our operations around the world to serve our expanding customer base.

We turned to PROS as the market leader, following a rigorous evaluation,” said Roy Kinnear, Etihad Airways’ Senior Vice President for Revenue Management and Planning.
“Airlines around the world look to PROS solutions as the big-data enabling technologies that fuel strategic growth, and the growth of Etihad Airways is remarkable by any measure. Etihad is recognized for both the quality of its operations and its award-winning passenger service, and we are proud to provide its next-generation revenue management solutions,” said PROS Travel President Benson Yuen.
