Real-time market intelligence

Unleashing the power of strategic airline pricing with Sabre Air Price IQ: a deep dive into revenue management in the modern aviation landscape. 

Sabre Air Price IQ™, a revolutionary airline pricing tool, is set to transform the airline industry by embracing the dynamic world of continuous pricing. With this sophisticated AI-driven platform, airlines can bid farewell to traditional static pricing and embrace a more granular, customer-centric approach.

At its core, Air Price IQ empowers airlines to optimize their pricing strategies based on real-time market intelligence. This means understanding not only the competition’s offerings but also the airline’s own product capabilities and brand preferences. Armed with this intelligence, airlines can cater to different passenger segments and capitalize on untapped revenue opportunities.

Let’s delve into the inner workings of Air Price IQ. This robust platform leverages Sabre Travel AI™, built in partnership with Google, to comprehend market context, schedule information, trip purpose segmentation, and even revenue management controls. By integrating these data points, Air Price IQ dynamically formulates an optimal offer that boosts revenue, increases conversion rates and enhances traveler experience. Travelers have access to customized and personalized offers and airlines can generate new revenue opportunities.

Imagine you have a static fare of $100 and $150 for a flight. With traditional pricing, you miss out on potential revenue from passengers willing to pay $120, $130, or $140 for the same journey. Air Price IQ changes the game by offering more granular price points, thereby capturing demand from various passenger segments.

Sabre’s innovative Air Price IQ is a key driver in our move from static pricing to dynamically created personalized offers.
