Founded in 1993, Radixx International built the first Windows-based airline reservations system. The Radixx Air Passenger Services System was designed and engineered from the beginning to enable an airline to sell anything, through any channel (whether direct, through a global distribution system, ticketless, or ETicketed), using any form of payment.
With the innovations surrounding the internet, the natural progression of airlines moving away from just the sale of seats to the sale of practically everything and anything, in addition to the fare, was inevitable. Built from the ground up as an enterprise reservations platform, not just an inventory management system, Radixx’s offering uses the power and scalability of the Oracle relational database to serve more than 40 airlines, worldwide.
Traditionally, the airline industry has used mainframe architectures rather than relational databases to support its reservation systems. However, Radixx International selected Oracle Database due to its performance, scalability, and reliability.
“I can’t imagine any airline in the world that could not run everything on Oracle. We are constantly amazed. It has surpassed all expectations,” said Ron Peri, chief executive officer, Radixx International.
Radixx International has used Oracle Database since 2000 and upgraded to Oracle Database 11g in 2012.
