Sabre Corporation, a global technology provider to the travel and tourism industry, has signed a new agreement with Royal Jordanian to provide the carrier with a suite of technology to help plan its network of flights. Airline network planning departments face several challenges, such as proactively and accurately informing network planners about which markets to serve and determining the right markets in which to codeshare. Under the new multi-year agreement, Royal Jordanian will benefit from the Sabre Network Planning suite of technology, which will help it address these challenges.
Through the suite, which includes Schedule Manager, Slot Manager, Profit Manager, and Fleet Manager, Royal Jordanian will be able to optimise its network of flights based on a number of market conditions. The airline will also enjoy more accurate forecasting and analysis of its network, enabling it to deploy its aircraft more effectively. Royal Jordanian operates more than 500 flights per week to 44 destinations across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“Royal Jordanian already has a strong brand and a history of great success in the Middle Eastern region,” said Dino Gelmetti, Vice President EMEA, Airline Solutions at Sabre. “The market conditions of the region are now rapidly evolving. Larger carriers are facing increased competition from low-cost carriers, so airlines like Royal Jordanian are adopting industry-leading data and technology to be more responsive to sudden market and competitor changes.”
“We are among the most successful carriers in the Levant region and have an opportunity to keep on growing,” said President and CEO of Royal Jordanian Captain Suleiman Obeidat. “In order to maintain our strong reputation and performance, we need to adapt ourselves to the needs of the regional market we serve and make sure we are using our resources efficiently. Sabre’s technology will give us a new level of insight, enabling us to make better network planning decisions that will improve our profitability and enable us to invest more in enhancing the experience for our passengers.”
