Singapore Airlines to introduce real-time, holistic, crew management system

Singapore Airlines will soon introduce Sabre´s (NASDAQ: SABR) new industry-leading, real-time, crew management technology package to support more efficient scheduling, training and decision-making capabilities, the airline said.

Benefiting the carrier, airline employees and customers alike, AirCentre Crew Manager is a new holistic crew management solution and among the dozens of new airline technologies that have been introduced from global technology provider, Sabre Corporation.
