Aerolíneas Argentinas prepares for SkyTeam integration

Sabre Airline Solutions has equipped Aerolíneas Argentinas with the necessary technology to enable its recent entrance into the SkyTeam global airline network.

This much anticipated milestone for the carrier is part of its long-term restructuring plan, which includes upgrading its entire IT platform including revenue, network and flight planning solutions.

In May 2011, the airline renewed its technology agreement with Sabre, including SabreSonic Customer Sales & Service.

SabreSonic CSS is the industry’s only seamless customer sales and service solution enabling powerful points of sale and service.

This industry-leading solution was the instrumental technology centrepiece to meet SkyTeam alliance integration requirements.

“Sabre’s management and continuous support have been crucial during AR integration into the Alliance.

“Coordinating a project involving 17 partners, multiple systems and IT suppliers has its challenges, but Sabre’s knowledge and experience ensured a successful transition,” said Alejandro Nardi, alliances development manager, Aerolíneas Argentinas.

Sabre provides the airline with the capabilities essential for alliance membership.

Now, passengers flying on Aerolíneas Argentinas can experience the benefits of the SkyTeam alliance.

Aerolíneas Plus members will enjoy expanded global reach, be recognised by status, be able to redeem awards for travel, and be prioritized for boarding, seating, and baggage handling.

SabreSonic CSS will also enable AR and other SkyTeam members to efficiently work together and deliver a seamless customer experience using interactive passenger and operational data.
