Sabre, a leading software and technology provider that powers the global travel industry, has signed an agreement with Malaysia Airlines to enable the carrier to enhance its network planning and optimisation with Sabre technology as it continues to ramp up operations.
The Kuala Lumpur-based carrier and Sabre have a successful, valued, long-standing relationship, having worked together for more than two decades. This latest agreement supports Malaysia Airlines’ efforts to deliver robust schedules that are operationally feasible and profitable. It will use Sabre’s network planning and optimisation products for critical decision support to help it to forecast schedule profitability, match capacity and demand, and improve aircraft utilisation and network connectivity.
Malaysia Airlines flies an extensive route network spanning across Asia Pacific, the Middle East and the UK. With travel restrictions having eased in Malaysia earlier this year, bookings immediately surged for both inbound and outbound travel. The carrier is now firmly focused on longer-term plans including launching new routes, expanding codeshare partnerships, replacing aircraft and exploring sustainable aviation fuel options. In a further sign of the recovering premium travel sector, the airline has also re-opened its three Golden Lounges at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
The carrier has selected a full suite of Sabre scheduling solutions, made up of Schedule Manager, Fleet Manager, Profit Manager, Codeshare Manager as well as Slot Manager.
