Azul Airlines adopts Sabre next generation crew management solution

Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), the Texas-based technology provider to the travel industry, has announced that Brazil-based Azul Airlines has completed its migration to Sabre AirCentre Crew Manager, the company said.

The comprehensive technology will enable the airline to quickly manage and track all crew operations — one of the most costly and complex aspects of airline operations — from a single, integrated and real-time platform. This marks the first implementation of Crew Manager in the Americas.

Crew Manager helps an airline maximize crew utilization, enable cost control and support regulatory compliance through optimized planning, innovative tracking and management, and disruption management decision support. Crew Manager, built on modern cloud technologies, allows for proactive, event-based messaging to crew members in real-time, powered by web services-based integration. It will empower Azul to manage crew from planning through day-of operations.

Sabre Corporation´s software, data, mobile and distribution solutions are used by hundreds of airlines and thousands of hotel properties to manage critical operations, including passenger and guest reservations, revenue management, flight, network and crew management. Sabre also operates a leading global travel marketplace, which processes more than USD 120 billion of global travel spend annually by connecting travel buyers and suppliers.

Azul S.A. offers 854 daily flights to 114 destinations. With an operating fleet of 129 aircraft and more than 11,000 crewmembers, the Company has a network of 252 non-stop routes as of June 30, 2019.
