Solutions to improve passenger airport experience, on-time performance, reduce costs
Southlake, TX, and Orlando, FL November 9, 2004 AirTran Airways and Sabre Airline Solutions announced an agreement for resource management technology that will enable the air carrier to implement faster staffing solutions for airport operations.
The technology will be provided through two components of the Sabre Streamline suite of resource management products.
The two technology components, Sabre Streamline StaffPlan and Sabre Streamline StaffAdmin, will be implemented across all of AirTran Airways' operations.
AirTran Airways said it will leverage the Streamline suite for planning, rostering and administrating its employee resources. By utilizing the Streamline suite, it will be able to reduce operational costs, improve on-time performance and better utilize employee resources, according to the carrier.

Smith added that, when it comes to technology, a growing airline can't stand still. "Sabre Airline Solutions has the breadth and depth of smart solutions to meet our changing operational needs and the personnel to ensure success,
