Sun Country Airlines Chooses Sabre Airline Solutions

Sun Country Airlines and Sabre Airline Solutions announced today the
successful implementation of Sabre Aerodynamic Traveler Web Check-in and
Sabre Aerodynamic Traveler Gate Reader, part of the integrated Sabre
Aerodynamic Traveler Passenger Processing suite of passenger processing
tools. The services will be delivered via Sabre Airline Solutions’ eMergo
web-enabled and dedicated network solutions, an applications service
provider (ASP) offering.
Use of the Internet by airline customers for flight check-in increased by
300 percent in 2003, with 27 percent of business travelers and 23 percent
of leisure travelers using the Internet for check-in, according to
industry reports by Forrester and Giga research firms. Sun Country
Airlines and Sabre Airline Solutions are meeting industry demands by
providing passengers with more convenient check-in and boarding options.

“Our customers needed relief from the longer lines at the Humphrey
Terminal,” said Mark Ondrey, Director of Information Technology with Sun
Country Airlines. “The collaborative efforts of Sabre Airline Solutions
and the Sun Country staff have already paid off, with more than a third of
our passengers having checked in for their flights at suncountry.com in
just the first two weeks of availability. The improvements at the gates
have enhanced the efficiency of our airport staff activities and we’ve
received extremely positive passenger feedback, making this implementation
a true win-win for everyone involved.”

The three-year agreement demonstrates Sun Country’s commitment to
providing its passengers with the newest automation designed to improve
their airport experience. “By choosing the Aerodynamic Traveler Web
Check-in and Gate Reader, Sun Country is providing its passengers with
technology that has streamlined the boarding process from check-in to
take-off,” said Steve Clampett, president, Airline Products and Services,
for Sabre Airline Solutions.

The implementation also is a testament to Sabre Airline Solutions’ ability
to provide key airport automation for the advantage of its airline
clients. “Sun Country is positioning itself ahead of the curve by using
technology that is both accommodating and cost-effective,” Clampett
continued. “Those carriers that anticipate and prepare for changing
industry dynamics, such as the trend towards passenger self-service
check-in, will reap the competitive advantage that helps ensure their
short- and long-term profitability.”

Initially, these systems will be in use at the Humphrey Terminal at the
Minneapolis/St Paul International Airport, the Sun Country primary airport
hub.
