Japan Airlines (JAL) has announced it has started to implement CHAMP’s API Gateway solution.
The solution will power a new domestic air cargo service that enables the carrier to compete with other modes of transport, integrating air and land options.
JAL is able to use a suite of APIs that connect its new domestic service to Cargospot, the airline’s cargo management system, developed and operated by CHAMP.
Benefits of the API integration include instant end-to-end quotation for customers and the ability to allow partners to offer multiple services including checking for flight availability and managing bookings.
“CHAMP has delivered truly innovative solution,” commented Yasunari Taniguchi, vice president, administration, cargo & mail at Japan Airlines Cargo.
“Instead of arranging land and air transportation separately, and manually comparing the different options, the power of CHAMP’s APIs now allows us to connect and provide an easier and seamless end-to-end proposition to our valued customers. We are delighted with the smooth roll-out and business transformation, and with the excellent cooperation of CHAMP’s delivery team.”
