Sabre Launches Graphical Flight Route Editing Tool

Sabre Airline Solutions has released Sabre Flight Explorer Professional Edition 9.0, which features system enhancements that will help airlines determine the most efficient route around weather events and airspace constraints. The enhancements will help pre-empt delays and maximize fuel savings, Sabre says.

Sabre Flight Explorer Professional Edition 9.0 features a powerful and versatile graphical route editing tool, enhanced route analyzer, drawing object functionality that includes “avoidance” regions and a new fuel on-board range ring feature that recognizes a static reserve fuel amount.

The new graphical editing tool, part of Sabre Flight Explorer’s Aircraft Situation Display (ASD) system, enables flight dispatchers to graphically manipulate a route, or series of routes, to quickly determine the best possible route. Additionally, this feature supports Rubber Banding, which recognizes any Fix/NAVAID/Airport on-screen within the current view.

Sabre says its Flight Explorer Professional is the industry's most accurate, reliable and widely used ASD. The system goes beyond “flight tracking” by incorporating multiple data feeds, dynamic weather overlays, situational alerts and forecast weather and air traffic management tools to make Sabre Flight Explorer Professional an essential flight operations management tool.

 “Version 9.0 really enhances a dispatcher’s ability to utilize Sabre Flight Explorer as a pre-flight and en-route graphical flight planning and management tool,” said Ilia Kostov, vice president of operations solutions for Sabre Airline Solutions. “Our customers will experience operational efficiencies and fuel savings with this new  solution—critical needs for every air carrier.”
