FLYR Labs has announced it has acquired the offer and order management provider Pribas for an undisclosed amount. Pribas, a Germany based 'alternative PSS provider' launched its platform, AirBroker ONE in 2018 which is purely based on the newer technology principles of NDC and ONE Order. The Norwegian LCC, Flyr (not to be confused with FLYR Labs) was Pribas's first customer to fully complete a booking solely using the new reservation/offer and order management platform. This is a major move for FLYR Labs, clearly entering the PSS market when airlines are actively looking to develop their order management capabilities and put less dependency on traditional PSS technology.

T2RL's research projected 2.1 billion passengers in the market for airline revenue management systems in 2021, a 25% increase on 2020 numbers.

Amadeus has expanded the integration and partnership announced in July 2021 by acquiring Kambr. Navitaire has been active in developing revenue optimisation capabilities for ancillaries via its API products and services. The acquisition of Kambr expands its capablities for inventory and revenue management control. Accelya's RMS is currently the leading provider of revenue management solutions for Navitaire's customer base. Navitaire will likely push the value of tighter integration and service management as part of the value proposition of Kambr. Given the Navitaire customers' thirst for simplicity, this is likely to resonate. T2RL expects to see more Navitaire customers adopting Kambr as a result.
