Austrian Airlines Selects Sabre Airline Solutions Next-Generation Crew Management Solution


Southlake, Texas (SABRE AIRLINE SOLUTIONS) -Sabre Airline Solutions, the leading provider of software and services to the airline industry from planning to execution, and Austrian Airlines, the flag carrier of Austria, today announced the airline's selection of Sabre Rocade Crew Management System, a next-generation crew management solution. Austrian Airlines flight operations will use the Crew Management System to plan and track crew scheduling throughout its entire operations, including 50 aircraft and more than 3,000 crew members. Sabre Airline Solutions will also provide professional services and ongoing support for Austrian Airlines during the implementation and for a period of at least five years.

"The Rocade suite offers an optimal mix of rich functionality, yet is easily accessible and highly advanced in terms of automation and optimization," said Markus Christl, project manager, Austrian Airlines. "At the same time, the Rocade suite is very robust and provides a truly user-friendly graphical interface superior to any other alternative we evaluated. With the Crew Web Portal, we will be able to communicate more efficiently and allocate our resources more accurately according to individual crew preferences.

"The Rocade suite's model for implementation and provision of assistance brings safety and predictability to the project. Its large and active customer community confirms that implementation projects constantly meet the expectations," concluded Christl.

The Crew Management System uses a highly automated, single database workflow with integrated modules for cost-effective, fair and equitable crew planning methods. Integrated functionality allows for complete crew management including pairing optimization, vacation management, automatic roster construction and Web-based crew check-in. This allows users to easily view and manage crew management information in order to better manage the ever-changing crew operations environment. Additionally, all modules are integrated and coordinated with L2K, the Rocade suite's unique technology for legality control that enables optimal flexibility for user-definable rules management.

"Flag carrier airlines such as Austrian Airlines are turning toward building solutions on integrated standard systems to achieve a balance between advanced functionality and ease of use," said Urban Deljerud, managing director of Sabre Rocade AB, Sabre Airline Solutions. "With the built-in flexibility and the implementation methodology developed by the Rocade suite, we can develop a crew management solution to fit any airline's unique characteristics and needs."
