Vietnam Airlines increases agreement with technology provider Sabre

Technology provider Sabre Corporation has announced a new long-term agreement with national carrier Vietnam Airlines.

The agreement has seen Vietnam Airlines adopt Sabre AirVision’s in-flight solution, which is expected to drive substantial efficiencies and cost savings for the airline.

“Vietnam Airlines is pleased to deepen its partnership with Sabre. As the fastest growing flag carrier in Southeast Asia, we continually look for innovative technology solutions to propel our business into the future,” said Trinh Ngoc Thanh, executive vice president, Vietnam Airlines. “In addition to optimizing our onboard catering and provisioning, In-Flight will also enable a connected view across all our catering functions and provide advanced integration and automation capabilities that will positively contribute to our margin.”

The company is saying that its In-Flight platform can help an airline to drive cost savings of up to 10% of its total catering budget by enabling a integration between the airline and its catering partners.

The carrier also recently extended its agreement to utilise SabreSonic, Sabre’s passenger service system (PSS), and renewed a long-term content distribution agreement through the Sabre Global Distribution System (GDS) over the past year.
