Cloud Migration Will Support ARC's Future Data and Settlement Platform

Airlines Reporting Corp. (ARC) is pleased to announce that Amazon Web
Services (AWS) was selected by ARC to enhance its ability to deliver on
all of the key requirements of ARC's long-term transformation program.

future data and an enhanced settlement product. AWS's industry-leading
cloud services will allow ARC to provide improved functionality that
supports new distribution models and relationships between airlines and
agencies. Moving to the cloud will let ARC increase capacity as the
business scales without waiting until it is procured, delivered and
installed. Working with AWS will also allow for more software

of our agency and airline customers today and in the future," said ARC's
Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Dickie Oliver. "ARC will
be able to deliver the products and services our customers desire at a
pace that matches their needs and will drastically improve ARC's
technology service capabilities."

travel vertical. Market leaders like ARC are joining the family of
travel companies that have chosen to use AWS to transform their
businesses and innovate on behalf of their customers. We look forward to
working with ARC on their mass migration to AWS, and enabling them to
take advantage of the breadth and depth of AWS services like machine
learning and artificial intelligence to build new cloud-based products
at a faster pace."
