    TUCSON, Ariz., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Airline Automation, Inc. (AAI), the
 Tucson based airline Application Service Provider today announced that ATA
 (American Trans Air) has selected its PK Processor application.
     PK Processor is an automated queue processing module that monitors passive
 bookings made by travel agencies through the Global Distribution System (GDS),
 and enforces the airline's passive booking policy.  Since the process runs
 from AAI's computer center in Tucson there is no need for the airline to
 invest in computers or communications software, nor is it necessary for the
 airline's employees to write programming code in order for the process to
 work.
     "We chose AAI's application because it is truly turn-key, and since we
 already use their automated flight firming product, this was a natural choice
 for us," said Richard Lesman, ATA's Director of Sales and Distribution.  "Our
 flight firming implementation has been going very smoothly and working with
 AAI during this time has been a very positive experience." he continued.
 
     AAI provides automated services to over 30 airlines from its base in
 Tucson, AZ.  For further information on AAI and the services it provides,
