Checking in for your flight from a taxi, in a café, even while dropping the kids off at school is now a reality with the launch of Sabre Airline Solutions’ new Mobile Check-In solution.
Launched in conjunction with Italian carrier, AirOne, Sabre’s latest innovative breakthrough allows passengers to check-in for a flight and even select their seats, using a web-enabled mobile phone.
Mobile Check-In is part of the SabreSonic Suite, Sabre’s flagship customer sales and service solution, and integrates with other SabreSonic self-service check-in options including web and kiosk check-in, providing airlines with the broadest range of check-in options across all customer touch points.
“Self-service check-in is now a priority for many airlines as they look for ways to cut costs,” said Murray Smyth, vice president of Sabre Airline Solutions in Europe.
“Sabre’s Mobile Check-In solution not only provides the cost benefits, more importantly it improves the customer experience, making check-in more accessible, easier and faster – a real bonus for time-constrained corporate travellers.”
AirOne selected Sabre’s Mobile Check-In solution because of its recognised industry leadership in providing solutions to the airline market.
“We needed a product that complemented our existing portfolio of fast passenger check-in services including self-service kiosks at airport terminals, Telecheck and web check-in,” said Alfonso Razzi, chief information officer of AirOne. “After reviewing several options, we selected Sabre because they offered an integrated solution with strong expertise in this area.
“By using Sabre Mobile Check-In we anticipate further savings on our passenger check-in costs, while also reducing congestion at airports and offering our passengers a very user-friendly service that meets the requirements of today’s travellers who increasingly rely on their mobile devices for communication and business activity,” he said.
