AirJapan plans future growth after successful implementation of full Radixx portfolio from Sabre

SOUTHLAKE, Texas, and TOKYO, Japan – April 8, 2024 –  Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), a leading software and technology provider that powers the global travel industry today announced the successful implementation of a full suite of Radixx solutions for AirJapan. The new carrier flew its inaugural route from Japan to Bangkok earlier this year and is gearing up to introduce new routes, underpinned by Sabre’s Radixx technology.

AirJapan is now using Radixx Res, a retailing-based Passenger Service System (PSS), which will enable the carrier to make intelligent, intuitive decisions, streamline operations, optimize traveler experiences, and enhance revenue opportunities. AirJapan’s operational launch further strengthens Radixx’s presence as one of the leading PSSs in the competitive Japanese marketplace.

“We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional passenger experience with a low-cost model, and our technology partnership with Sabre is an important part of this,” said Toru Ishikawa, Executive Vice President, AirJapan. “Thanks to Sabre’s delivery and implementation teams executing this project on time and on budget, we’re now able to use the Radixx PSS suite to elevate the travel journey at multiple touchpoints for our travellers while ensuring we can gain operational efficiencies and create revenue opportunities as we move forward with our growth story.”

AirJapan flies routes covering Asia and is a member of the ANA group, operating under complete ownership of ANA Holdings Inc. The implementation means AirJapan will be hosted on the Radixx PSS, which comprises the Radixx reservation system, departure control suite (Radixx Go), data and analytics system (Radixx Insight), and an internet booking system (Radixx ezyCommerce). AirJapan, known for providing passengers with generous seat pitches, currently operates flights to Bangkok, Singapore, and Seoul, and has plans to further extend its network.

“We’re thrilled to have reached this implementation milestone with AirJapan,” said Rakesh Narayanan, Vice President, Regional General Manager, Asia Pacific, Travel Solutions Airline Sales, Sabre. “We know AirJapan has ambitious plans to expand their footprint across the airline landscape and Sabre is committed to being their trusted technology partner on this journey.”
