Avianca Airlines and Sabre renew technology partnership

Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), the leading technology provider to the global travel industry, today announced a renewed partnership with Avianca for Sabre AirCentre Flight Explorer, its comprehensive flight tracking and monitoring solution. In conjunction with Flight Explorer, Avianca will utilize the Surface Manager module to provide full awareness of aircraft location on the ground, even before takeoff and after landing.

Flight Explorer streamlines data delivery, allows for intuitive flight management, enables integrated flight planning and allows users to set advanced, flight-specific thresholds based on industry or company requirements.  Flight Explorer also streamlines route analysis through graphical route displays that include real-time data such as weather and airspace restrictions. These capabilities help Avianca make decisions based on the most current data, ultimately saving on costs and minimizing disruptions which results in a better passenger experience.

Flight tracking is not a new concept. Before computers, airlines used flight plans to manually estimate locations at given times, but since then flight tracking technology has advanced to incorporate more sophisticated data – not only aircraft position but additional data such as weather and air traffic control information. Flight Explorer can easily adapt to include incremental data sources as they became available, meaning Flight Explorer is uniquely positioned to accommodate evolving industry recommendations and expanding data sources as the need arises.

"We are proud to continue our partnership and help Avianca adapt internal processes to meet increasingly complex company and regulatory requirements," said Vinit Doshi, chief marketing officer, Sabre Airline Solutions. "Flight Explorer delivers industry leading monitoring capabilities and does so without burdening the technology teams or end users."

Avianca will also rely on Flight Explorer's Surface Manager module for gate-to-gate monitoring, which delivers even more comprehensive decision support, improves efficiency and reduces the risk of error.

"Flight Explorer simplifies our route analysis with real-time data such as weather and airspace restrictions, allowing us to make quicker decisions and offer a better travel experience to our customers," said Miguel Montoya, senior vice president of technique and operations at Avianca.

Avianca expects to add two new European destinations in the coming months, as it sees strong demand in its international network. Avianca currently serves London Heathrow, Madrid and Barcelona.

August 2017

Avianca (AV, Bogotá) boss, Hernan Rincon, has told Bloomberg that the airline has the go-ahead for a USD200 million capital increase.

"We are planning a capital increase of $200 million. That capital increase has been given the green light by the board of directors, and we are now in the process of doing all the legal and financial to raise capital."

As previously reported, the cash injection will come from Avianca's Brazilian parent, Synergy Aerospace.

Avianca is currently facing some legal issues over its proposed tie-up with United Airlines (UA, Chicago O'Hare), with its second largest shareholder protesting the move. Kingsland has filed a suit against Avianca, saying that the merger will personally benefit Synergy, and Synergy's owner German Efromovich. Rincon dismissed the case, calling it completely baseless. He added that the negotiations with United are going well.

"We meet on a weekly basis," he said, regarding the United deal. "We have made great progress. And we believe, we're aspiring to close the agreement in this year."

In the interview, Rincon also highlighted Avianca's commitment to improving its digital offering.

"We are transforming Avianca into a digital company that flies aircraft. And at the same time, we are building one of the top two airlines Latin American-wide, serving the whole continent," he said
