Indias Air India has teamed up with Sabre Airline Solutions in an attempt to achieve operational efficiencies in key airline functions and be more cost efficient.

Sabre Airline Solutions will move Air India toward having a fully integrated flight control system, providing Air India with solutions from the Sabre AirVision and Sabre AirCentre suites.

The Sabre Integrated Operations Control Centre (IOCC) and dedicated hub control centre gives Air India an automatic decision aid, making recovery from any irregularities whether a flight diversion or delay smooth and efficient.

India is very proud to be hosting the Commonwealth Games this year. As the countrys flag carrier, Air India is determined to present its best and help make the event a resounding success. With the automated hub and operations control system in place, Air India will surely be in a better position to handle the high traffic inflow that is expected for the games, said K.M. Unni, head of MRO (Airframe) and engineering and member of the board of directors of Air India.

The Sabre AirCentre Flight forms the backbone of the entire fleet operation, providing an easy way to monitor and schedule daily flight operations and notifies of impending operations issues before they become problems. The Sabre AirCentre Crew enables airlines to efficiently plan and manage their crew operations. From planning and bidding to crew rosters and pairing, the solution enables airlines to effectively plan their crew operations, taking into account crew training and qualification requirements.

The Sabre AirVision suite not only helps in the complex decision making processes when formulating an airline schedule, but will also optimise it. Using complex algorithms and high-level operational research techniques, the suite analyzes data from the airline, and from other sources, to make informed forecasts about the profitability of the schedule. It makes optimum usage of the fleet, and can also assist in the assignment of slots.

Air India is administered under the National Aviation Company of India Limited (NACIL). Under its wings are also Air India Express and Air India Cargo. Together, the group services 370 flights daily to 60 destinations with hubs in Mumbai and New Delhi. Air India, based in Mumbai, is the 16th largest airline in Asia, serving 93 destinations in 24 countries worldwide. The airline, founded in 1932, has a fleet of 136 aircraft, and it is gradually expanding its network to cover new destinations in India and abroad.
