Travel technology provider Sabre Corporation recently announced an agreement to expand its digital operations technology alliance with Spirit Airlines, the leading value carrier in the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America.
“This alliance will make the airline one of the first carriers to utilize the breadth of the innovative, next-generation Sabre Operations Platform, the industry’s only end-to-end operations solution,” Sabre Corporation said.
Spirit, a current user of several of Sabre’s operations solutions, will soon implement Sabre AirCentre Movement Manager, Crew Manager and Recovery Manager, rounding out the core components of the Sabre Operations Platform. Collectively, this suite of technology tools provides comprehensive real-time intelligent optimization of airline operations.
“We are enthusiastically enabling further improvements to our operations processes by incorporating the remaining core elements of the Sabre Operations Platform,” said Rocky Wiggins, chief information officer of Spirit Airlines.
The cloud-enabled intelligent platform delivers valuable pan-operational insights, allowing employees to focus on critical activities that impact operational costs. Carriers can quickly recover from disruptive situations at the lowest cost, as the platform enables real-time publications of adjusted flight and crew schedules, taking pan-operations constraints into consideration.
Further, the platform enables mobile tools that deliver notifications, allowing for seamless communication between operations controllers, crew schedulers and crew members and ensuring alignment across the airline.
“The power of the Sabre Operations Platform lies in its unified, intelligent and agile approach across the operations space. It helps customers like Spirit maximize profitability while keeping operating costs low,” said Cem Tanyel, president of Sabre Airline Solutions.
Using a robust set of APIs, carriers can easily layer on customized features or integrate with other commercial solutions.
“For years, Spirit has been at the forefront of transforming the low-cost carrier space, and the adoption of the Sabre Operations Platform is just another example of how they’re leading the industry by increasing operational efficiencies,” Tanyel said.
