Sabre Corporation is to provide Lion Air with its Sabre AirCentre Operations and Crew Platform to optimise the carrier’s daily operations and reduce costs.
The Sabre AirCentre Operations and Crew Platform includes an aircraft tracking solution, Sabre AirCentre Movement Manager; and Sabre AirCentre Crew Manager, its crew management platform. It also includes pairing and rostering solutions delivered in conjunction with AD OPT that aim to simplify crew planning processes, improve productivity, and enhance crew satisfaction.
Other notable solutions being deployed by Lion Air include Sabre’s AirCentre Recovery Manager, a disruption management tool; and Sabre AirCentre Crew Connection, a new web technology allowing trackers, controllers and crew to use real-time communications and integrated services.
Sabre’s AirCentre technology and mobile capabilities are being deployed simultaneously across the Lion Air Group including its subsidiary airlines Batik Air, Wings Air, Malindo Air, and Thai Lion Air.
