Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR) said it has introduced enhanced capabilities to its Sabre AirCentre Flight Explorer solution.
Airlines have already begun using the innovative new features in the latest release, which provides real-time data to enable accurate decision-making in flight operations. The flagship feature, Fleet Monitor, builds on existing airport and flight monitoring capabilities to provide airlines a comprehensive dashboard view of their entire fleet.
The airline industry has recently placed increased focus on flight tracking. In November 2014, the ICAO´s Aircraft Tracking Task Force (ATTF) released a set of recommendations to improve global aircraft tracking capabilities. The flight tracking software is a critical component of the recommendations, and Sabre has partnered with airlines to enhance capabilities and compliance of the latest release of Sabre AirCentre Flight Explorer.
The new Fleet Monitor feature also gives airlines the ability to set up customized monitoring and alerting based on user-defined thresholds. For example, if a plane goes off route or doesn´t report its position within a few minutes, the airline will be alerted and escalation can begin instantly.
