Ethiopian Signs up for Sabre Passenger Reservations Solution
Ethiopian Airlines has renewed its passenger reservations system with global travel technology provider, Sabre Corporation as it signed up for a suite of new technology solutions to support its continued growth as a world-class carrier.
Consistently posting record profits for the past seven years, Ethiopian Airlines has been using Sabre’s technology for its core reservations, network planning and ecommerce since 2005.
Despite the challenges in African aviation, Ethiopian has continued with thriving successes and has become the leading Aviation group in Africa, nine years ahead of its 15 years strategic growth roadmap, Vision 2025.
The next phase of development for Ethiopian Airlines is in enhancing its passenger experience. Among the new technology that Ethiopian Airlines will introduce is Sabre’s Intelligence Exchange.
Airlines currently sit on a goldmine of data, yet only use 12% of it to engage with passengers; Intelligence Exchange enables airlines to turn that remaining 88% of data into actionable insights.
Armed with a 360 degree view of each passenger, airlines can then offer individual travelers services that are uniquely relevant to them – increasing sales of ancillaries.
More than 225 airlines currently use Sabre’s technology to decrease operational costs, increase profit and transform the way they serve travelers – including many of the world’s largest carriers.
Ethiopian commands the lion’s share of the pan-African passenger and cargo network operating the youngest and most modern fleet to more than 100 destinations across five continents.
Ethiopian fleet has an average age of 5 and includes ultra-modern and environmentally friendly aircraft such as Airbus A350, Boeing 787, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 777-200LR and Bombardier Q-400.
