[Avionics Magazine 07-14-2016] Sabre has expanded its long-term technology agreement with Latam Airlines Group, with the implementation of Sabre's Flight Plan Manager and broadening the adoption of Software-as-a-Service solutions from the Sabre AirCentre operational suite. Sabre's AirCentre Flight Plan Manager, which provides fully-automated flight planning capabilities, aims to help the group unify flight operations and fuel policies across its domestic operations in seven countries: Chile, Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Paraguay.

Sabre's Flight Plan Manager brings together real-time information on a number of key variables, including weather, air space restrictions, aircraft performance and schedule information. From this information it calculates the most optimal flight route. The technology aims to help Latam deliver enhancements in flight planning and operational efficiency, including a subsequent reduction in CO2 emissions.
