For Kazakh airlines, the issue of using information technologies (IT) is relevant and complex, since the increased competition and partially identical business practices by companies in the same industry force the accelerated implementation of such technologies in their activities. It is necessary to consider and systematize information technologies and systems used by leading air carriers in order to structure them and determine the formats of their use in airlines. The methodological framework of the study consists of the dialectical, system, and historical approaches, fundamental provisions of economic theory, the theory of information economy and innovative development, and studies conducted by scientists-economists devoted to the development of the information society and the problems of company functioning in the information economy. As a result, the investment project assessment for the implementation of information technologies was calculated, which clearly demonstrated the capabilities of such systems as a tool for improving competitiveness, and proved their fast payback period and positive impact on the company.
