Sabre, a leading provider of technology solutions for the aviation industry, has recently unveiled its latest innovation – Upgrade IQ. This groundbreaking solution leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to optimize premium cabin offerings for airlines and generate additional revenue streams.
Upgrade IQ harnesses advanced AI and ML technologies to empower travelers to participate in auction bids for upgrades to higher levels of passenger cabins. This opportunity is available to passengers at any stage of their journey, whether it’s pre-departure or during the flight itself.
As airlines increasingly seek to diversify their revenue streams, AI and ML technologies are becoming essential in generating smarter ancillary service revenue streams and providing personalized experiences to passengers.
Upgrade IQ enables airlines to better manage seat upgrades and generate additional revenue by filling unsold spaces in premium cabins. By offering timely and personalized upgrade options to passengers, airlines can achieve significant increases in revenue.
The Upgrade IQ platform utilizes advanced AI, developed in collaboration with Google, to capture airline data and employ Sabre’s AI/ML models to generate real-time detailed analysis. Based on this, optimal upgrade prices are generated, with a minimum and maximum offer range.
In addition, Sabre has partnered with Hopper Technology Solutions (HTS) to integrate its auction sales platform, providing a seamless experience for passengers.
“Sabre’s new solution exemplifies the importance of collaboration with partners in driving innovation and rapid market deployment.
