[ABU DHABI] IBM on Tuesday said it signed a US$300 million, ten-year technology services agreement with Dubai's Emirates Airline.

IBM will provide information technology services, allowing the airline to improve efficiency on its passenger support systems and functions, a statement from IBM said.

Under the managed services agreement, this will include assistance in encrypting the airline's data in near real-time and systems which allow different software components to communicate more effectively, the statement said.

In October 2015, IBM signed a US$700 million deal with Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways for a range of IT services and infrastructure.

Emirates, the world's fourth-largest carrier of international passengers reported a profit of US$1.93 billion for the financial year to March 31, a jump of 56 per cent over the year.
