Air India has teamed up with Sabre Airline Solutions in a bid to boost operational efficiencies in key airline functions and reduce costs. Sabre will move Air India toward having a fully integrated flight control system.

The Sabre Integrated Operations Control Centre (IOCC) and dedicated hub control centre give Air India an automatic decision aid, making recovery from any irregularities – whether a flight diversion or delay – smooth and efficient, Sabre said.

“Network planning and scheduling, operations and hub control, and crew management will be fully automated by Sabre’s technology, thus allowing the airline to provide the care and service their customers will demand at the front end,” said Vish Viswanathan, vice president, South Asia, Sabre Airline Solutions.

“Air India is now 100 per cent focused on cost efficiencies. Sabre approached us with innovative ideas and solutions to ensure we achieve those goals,” said Arvind Jadhav, chairman and managing director of Air India. “We are confident the Sabre team has not just the technology, but the know-how to make it all happen for us.”
