Etihad Airways Begins Implementation of More Sabre Software

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 3 October 2012

Etihad Airways has started implementing its latest tranche of Sabre software following the billion dollar technology agreement signed by the two companies last year.

Etihad has adopted Sabres codeshare, network and fleet management software to enhance its planning and scheduling operations.

These new capabilities complement the Sabre technology already selected including passenger reservations software primarily because the seamless flow of data between the systems will augment efficiencies in areas such as scheduling, slot planning, route optimisation and passenger connectivity.

Etihad Airways is also Sabres launch partner for the network manager software, a program that allows airlines to make intelligent schedule adjustments to improve connectivity through hubs.

The fine-tuning of schedules allows the airline to maximise connecting-traffic revenue, while delivering the best possible service to passengers.

These latest migrations mean Sabre is now Etihad Airways sole technology provider for planning and scheduling, and is committed to helping the airline achieve its international network expansion and revenue targets.

Darren Rickey, Sabre Airline Solutions Vice President Commercial Planning Solutions, said, In early benchmark studies we found that the network management software typically generated profitability improvements of between 1 and 2.5%. But the broader relationship, and Sabres role as Etihad Airways single technology provider means that we will be continuing to work with our colleagues in the airline on a daily basis to ensure that our software is improving efficiency and creating the widest possible profit margins.

Etihad Airways technology has been implemented using Sabres software-as-a-service (SaaS) hosted infrastructure and followed comprehensive customer consultation.
