The airberlin group recently announced its intent to partner with Sabre Corporation. The technology company will provide a full suite of software to support the carrier’s global business.
The long-term agreement will see the airline move to an integrated platform for a broad range of critical airline operations including SabreSonic® Customer Sales & Service (CSS) passenger reservations system, inventory, check-in, eCommerce, data insights and network management.
The benefits of the partnership will see the airline further optimise daily operations, drive incremental revenues and provide more personal travel experience.
Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, chief executive officer, airberlin said: “With Sabre, we get an integrated solution from a single provider which will enable us to achieve our commercial goals. The move to Sabre supports airberlin’s strategy to work with its airline partners, in particular Etihad Airways, to drive business efficiencies.”
The Sabre technology is adopted by 225 airlines worldwide. The software allows airlines to be flexible and scalable and adapt their business to changing needs and requirements. The migration to Sabre’s passenger reservations system begins this summer, continuing into 2016. Beginning July this year, airberlin will start using Sabre’s network management tools.
