ITA Software is a travel industry software company in Cambridge, Massachusettsmarker. The company was founded by computer scientists from the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in 1996.

History

ITA's first product was an airfare search and pricing system called QPX. This system is now used by Orbitz, CheapTickets, Farecast, travel agents and many of the U.S.marker and international airlines. ITA also hosts its own website based on QPX, although you cannot buy tickets from it.

ITA is known for using programming puzzles to attract and evaluate potential employees since 2001. Some of these puzzles appear in ads on Boston's MBTA subway system.

In January 2006, ITA received $100 million in venture capital money from investors led by Battery Ventures, marking the largest investment in a software firm in New England in 5 years.

In September 2006, ITA announced a several million dollar deal with Air Canada to develop a new computer reservations system to power its reservations, inventory control, seat availability, check-in, and airport operations.In August of 2009, Air Canada announced that the project had been suspended.
