Changi Airport to run ISO SKY Billing for Aeronautical Billing
After an extensive evaluation of the various billing systems, Changi Airport Group (CAG), the operator of Singapore Changi Airport, has selected SKY Billing for its new aeronautical billing application.
As the 7th busiest airport in the world in terms of international passenger volume, Changi Airport handles more than 40 million passenger movements annually. Transformed into flight movements, this figure represents about 6.000 arrivals and departures every week. All these flights will be accounted by ISO’s SKY Billing, the SAP-certified billing solution embedded into the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)-system . The implementation of SKY Billing is part of the new ERP-implementation project which started in September 2011 and will progressively be implemented until its ‘going-live’ in April 2012. Following CAG’s adoption of SKY Billing, the system will also be in operation at five major airports across Asia, including those in Bangkok and Delhi.
ISO’s SKY Billing implementation for CAG is intended to make the aeronautical billing more flexible in terms of applicable rules for the charges and fees at Changi Airport, and for more adequate reactions to market conditions and changing regulations. It will further improve the invoicing of the airlines by reducing the amount of invoices and the number of payment transactions, resulting in timelier and more accurate settlements, and in turn, improved cash-flow.
SKY Billing will cover all applied aeronautical charges and fees of CAG across all four terminals of Changi Airport, as well as Seletar Airport (XSP). It can be further configured to handle any new charges or fees should there be a need in the future. The system also features multi-airport capability, enabling it to incorporate billings at future airports as satellites outside of Singapore.
