Singapore:Sabre Corporation has expanded its 12-year partnership with Air China. Under the agreement, the carrier will extend the breadth of its Sabre AirCentre Operations portfolio to improve the management of major and minor disruptions that affect the airline’s operations and passenger experience.
The addition of this highly-advanced, innovative technology will also help drive increased profitability by automating Air China’s recovery efforts, while protecting its operational integrity and allowing the airline to deliver its brand promise.
For over a decade, Sabre has partnered with Air China to provide market leading innovation that has helped to drive the airline’s profitability and growth, while supporting their commercial and global operations.
Access to this new technology will help Air China continue to differentiate themselves within the market and to better serve their customers by improving on-time performance and recovery time after schedule disruptions.
With Sabre’s solutions, Air China will implement a state-of-the-art operations management system. The system is designed to improve on-time performance and increase aircraft utilization, while significantly reducing costs. Air China will also implement Sabre’s leading disruption management solution to respond to weather delays and unexpected disruptions that impact passengers and overall operations.
Beyond augmenting its operations portfolio with new innovation, Air China will continue to leverage Sabre’s integrated portfolio of solutions across commercial planning and enterprise operations. Collectively, this technology modernization brings the carrier closer to becoming a true end-to-end connected airline.
“Our mutually beneficial, longstanding relationship has enabled us to gain a comprehensive understanding of Air China’s business and deliver technology solutions that bring significant value to the airline,” said Dasha Kuksenko, Vice President & Regional Meneral Manager, Sabre Airline Solutions, Asia Pacific. “As a leading technology partner in China, Sabre is proud to manage the heart of the operations of a major Chinese carrier,” she added.
