Airline Updates: Air Seychelles

Air Seychelles Selects Sabre to Enhance Guest Experience and Airline Growth

Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, has selected global technology provider Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), to provide a full suite of technology that will support the carrier’s global business as well as enhance the Air Seychelles guest experience and revenue generating capabilities.

The agreement will see Air Seychelles move to an integrated platform for a broad range of critical operations including the SabreSonic® Customer Sales & Service (CSS) passenger reservation system, check-in solutions and boarding systems. 

Using Sabre’s robust and flexible software, Air Seychelles will be able to optimise daily operations, drive incremental revenues and ancillary revenue opportunities and provide guests with a more personal travel experience through tailored services, delivering an overall more consistent guest experience, with a faster, smoother check-in process.

The agreement was signed by Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, and Shane Batt, Senior Vice President, Strategic Clients, Sabre.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Transport and Chairman of Air Seychelles, Joël Morgan, welcomed the agreement with Sabre.

“The introduction of SabreSonic CSS is a signal the airline is maintaining its pace of growth and development with other airlines in the Etihad Airways Partners group, as it assumes its place as a leading airline in the world.

“The decision to implement SabreSonic is in line with the five year business plan as it lays the foundation for the ongoing evolution of the business. This is an exciting and important step for Air Seychelles,” Minister Morgan said.

Sabre’s technology is favoured by 225 airlines worldwide including most of the world’s largest carriers. Its flexible and scalable software allows airlines to operate how they want to, and adapt their business to changing needs and requirements. It optimises day-to-day airline operations and ultimately helps airlines solve their biggest challenges – to increase revenues, reduce costs and deliver better travel experiences.
