Sabre Corporation today announced an agreement with Malaysia Airlines (MH) to enable the carrier to enhance its network planning and optimization with Sabre technology as it continues to ramp up operations.
MH 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 optimization products for critical decision support to help it to forecast schedule profitability, match capacity and demand, and improve aircraft utilization and network connectivity.
“With industry recovery progressing well, we’re firmly focused on providing optimum routes whilst ensuring the integrity of our flight schedules,” said Mr Bryan Foong, Group Chief Strategy Officer, Malaysia Airlines. “As such, we’re thrilled to further cement our relationship with Sabre by selecting a full suite of network planning and scheduling solutions that will help the airline in designing the right schedules and deploying the right aircraft on the right route and time to maximize revenue opportunities, optimize costs and meet high traveller demand.”
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.
