SOUTHLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 20, 2005–Sabre Airline
Solutions, the industry leader in innovative technology for airlines
to market, sell and serve its customers, today announced Hong Kong
Dragon Airlines (Dragonair) has increased customer satisfaction levels
at check-in through the implementation of Sabre Qik Developer Tool and

Dragonair serves 31 passenger destinations across Asia with one of
the youngest and most advanced aircraft fleets in the region. Its

to rapidly improve staff productivity by eliminating the need for
check-in agents to enter cumbersome and repetitious commands. The
check-in interface provides us with easy access to all necessary
information so we are able to deliver more accurate and faster
responses to customer requests. The implementation at Pudong Airport
has successfully improved our check-in processing, hence we plan to
roll this technology out to Hong Kong and other cities in

applications for its constantly changing business environment. It
enables modification of the system and integration of new technology
and business procedures, such as CRM tools and interfacing with other
computing environments.
