Sabre Airline Solutions Launches Mobile Check-In Self-Service for Air One

Checking in for your flight from a taxi, in a caf?, 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 Gordon Locke, vice president of Airline Marketing for Sabre Holdings. 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 travelers.

AirOne selected Sabre's Mobile Check-In solution because of its recognized 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, CIO 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 travelers who are increasingly relying on their mobile devices for communication and business activity," he said.
