Sabre Corporation has expanded its long-term technology agreement with LATAM Airlines Group with the implementation of Sabre’s Flight Plan Manager and broadening the adoption of Software-as-a-Service solutions from the Sabre AirCentre operational suite.
AirCentre Flight Plan Manager, which provides fully-automated flight planning capabilities will help the group unify flight operations and fuel policies across its domestic operations in seven countries – in Chile, Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Paraguay – as well as its international network.
The product brings together real-time information on a number of key variables – including weather, air space restrictions, aircraft performance and schedule information – and then calculates the most optimal flight route.
Kamal Qatato, vice president of Sabre AirCentre said: “Sabre is fully committed to helping LATAM Airlines Group optimize its operation across its network to deliver efficiencies and fuel savings. Sabre and LATAM have a strategic relationship across the Sabre Airline Solutions portfolio and with this new agreement we are confident that our leading solution will help improve its flight planning.”
Jorge Ihnen, LATAM operations VP, said: “LATAM Airlines Group is committed to adopting the latest technology – such as Sabre’s Flight Plan Manager – to deliver improvements and efficiencies for our operation. As the leading airline group in the region, we will continue to work with partners such as Sabre to identify further advancements”.
