Sabre teams with Plan3 to provide airlines with disruption management solution

New agreement will provide a win-win for airlines and passengers, with increased choice for travelLers, and easy technological implementation for airlines

Sabre Corporation has announced a new agreement with automated airline disruption management solution Plan3 to enable airlines to be more proactive when disruption strikes.   

The new alliance will enable Sabre to quickly deliver a holistic approach to passenger disruption for its airline partners. Plan3 will link via APIs and web services to augment native irregular operations and schedule change options available through an airline’s Passenger Service System (PSS). 

“We’ve all seen, and many of us have experienced first-hand, increased disruption in this post-pandemic recovery era, so it’s more important than ever that airlines have an intuitive passenger disruption management tool that can enhance customer satisfaction, maximise operational efficiencies, and reduce recovery costs,” said Sveinn Akerlie, Plan3.

“We’re incredibly excited to be working with Sabre to help more airlines globally optimize their approach to disruption management across the entire passenger journey.”  

Using powerful automation, Plan3 enables airlines to respond to thousands of unique passenger disruptions at once. 

Its ‘issues dashboard’ allows airlines to monitor and react to the disruption status of passengers at an individual level, flagging any travellers that will experience issues due to a disruption event. 

“Speed and agility are of the utmost importance in today’s dynamic global travel marketplace, and this new relationship is another stepping stone in Sabre’s strategy to accelerate change through alliances to offer rapid innovation for our travel partners,” said Mike Barrera, VP product management, Sabre.  

“One of the challenges of disruption recovery is to ensure that the entire traveller journey is considered, from flights, to hotels, to pre-booked ancillaries such as in-flight meals. Plan3 provides depth and breadth of inventory, as an agnostic aggregator of disruption-related content to bring greater choices to passengers.

“We look forward to working with Plan3 to offer an intelligent solution for airlines and passengers alike, while expanding our product ecosystem with an easy-to-implement, passenger-first solution.”
