JAS Airport Services, the preferred and leading ground handling provider in Indonesia and ISAGO certified since 2010, recently appointed PT. Jasa Teknologi Informasi Mandiri (JTI Mandiri) as EDIFly licensor in Indonesia, an innovative solution for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) communication. The cooperation itself is for 3 years term.

The service has been specifically designed to allow a seamless, secure, reliable and backwards compatible exchange of standard Type B and Type X over the internet between any members of the EDIfly service.

This drives JAS to also choose EDIFly for its messaging solution. The usage of EDIFly system is also expected to reduce JAS messaging cost, as it utilizes public internet system.
The use of EDIFly does not require additional nor changes in JAS’ current system and hardware. The system has been undergoing several tests, on every messaging protocols and with various partners, and resulted satisfactorily. JAS is confident to start the use of the EDIFly system as of December 1, 2014.
