Malaysia Airlines Enhances Operations with Sabre Network Planning and Optimization Solutions

(07/06/23)  Malaysia Airlines has implemented a full suite of Sabre Network Planning and Optimization solutions.

The national carrier is using the solutions to optimize schedules, evaluate existing and future routes and partnerships, and make network planning decisions.

“We’re thrilled that we can now take full advantage of a wide range of Sabre solutions as we move forward with ambitious plan to capture and create growth in the Malaysian travel ecosystem and post pandemic travel recovery,” said Bryan Foong, Group Chief Strategy Officer, Malaysia Airlines. “We’re already seeing the value these solutions are bringing us in making timely schedule changes operationally and profitably to respond to dynamic travel market condition changes as we continue to grow and optimize capacity to meet strong travel demand post pandemic.”

Earlier this year, Sabre Schedule Manager, Codeshare Manager and Slot Manager solutions were implemented, and the carrier is now also able to utilize Sabre Profit Manager, Fleet Manager and Network Manager.

Together, the solutions give Malaysia Airlines enhanced decision support tools to further improve schedule profitability, and optimize capacity with demand, aircraft utilization and network connectivity.

“Having worked together for more than two decades, we’re thrilled to have strengthened our long-standing, and valued, relationship with this important new milestone,” said Rakesh Narayanan, Vice President, Regional General Manager, Asia Pacific, Travel Solutions, Airline Sales. “For airlines to gain a competitive advantage in today’s complex travel market, it is vital that they have the right tools to transition from making decisions based upon historic behaviours and can, instead, create schedules based on advanced analytics. Malaysia Airlines now has an extensive suite of best-in-class network planning tools that will provide them with invaluable decision-making support in their network and fleet management strategies.”
