Star Alliance has strengthened its common IT platform with the successful migration of three more member airlines.
Austrian Airlines, Adria Airways and Croatia Airlines have all switched their inventory, pricing, flight schedules and seat planning to the Amadeus-powered Common IT Platform (CITP).
Aman Khan, Star Alliance's vp IT, said: "These migrations mark another major milestone for the Star Alliance Common IT Platform as we can improve synergies across multiple Star Alliance members."
The airline alliance said member carriers using the CITP will be able to "align and manage their capacity more efficiently."
It said all inventory control and flight schedules for the airlines were smoothly migrated and distributed worldwide.
Star Alliance chose Amadeus' Altéa for its CITP in 2005, with senior members Lufthansa and United Airlines the first to migrate.
Members of the other major alliances - seven from oneworld and two from SkyTeam - also use Altea for inventory or reservation management, including Air France KLM.
