Sabre Airline Solutions Expands International Presence with Acquisition of RM Rocade

2004– Open Systems Platform Makes Powerful Flight Operations Technology
Suite Accessible, Easy-to-Use for Small, Medium, and Low Cost Carriers

Sabre Airline Solutions, the industry leader in airline operations
technology, today announced its acquisition of RM Rocade to help meet
the needs of international small, medium-size and low cost carriers
with an easy-to-use, fully functional flight operations product suite
at a compelling price and value point.

RM Rocade, with headquarters in Stockholm, develops and sells
software solutions to airlines for commercial planning, crew
management and operations control. Currently, more than 60 airlines
use the RM Rocade Integrated Suite, including FlyDBA, Air Atlanta,
MyTravel, Cyprus Airways Austrian Airlines, Icelandair, BA
Citiexpress, and other carriers in the European market. RM Rocade also
has a significant presence in Asia and other regions with customers
such as Air China and Kuwait Airways.

“Sabre Airline Solutions has made it possible for small,
medium-size and low cost carriers to operate in new ways through the
use of accessible technology,” said Tom Klein, group president for
Sabre Airline Solutions. “In the last four years, this has included
launching the most successful web-based applications access in the
industry through Sabre eMergo, our ASP offering, and adding PC-based
scheduling and operations software through the acquisition of David R.
Bornemann Associates in 2001. The RM Rocade integrated suite of
products is another extension of this strategy and portfolio.”

In today’s travel environment, airlines rely on sophisticated
flight operations technology solutions to help them quickly recover
from disruptions, such as weather or airport delays, and scheduling
crew for their aircraft. In fact, these systems are crucial for the
Systems Operations Control center, the nucleus of daily airline
operations. The initiatives Sabre Airline Solutions has made for the
small, medium-size and low cost carriers help ensure that these
technology solutions address their absolute requirement for
streamlined, affordable applications.

The ability to make technology accessible to small, medium-size
and low cost carriers is partly based on the open standards “plug and
play” type architecture. The RM Rocade suite has been designed from
the ground up with common industry C++ programming. This result is
powerful technology that is easy-to-use, is affordable and can quickly
integrate new technologies.

RM Rocade was formed in 1986 as Resource Management AB to offer
decision-support systems to the airline industry. The vision was to
offer powerful, user-friendly systems supporting an integrated
process, combining human experience with mathematical optimization.

“Sabre Airline Solutions is the right fit for our products because
they share our vision for leveraging technology to make smart
decisions and making this technology accessible and easy to use —
taking the airline in a box beyond concept but a reality for small and
medium size carriers,” said Urban Deljerud, CEO, for RM Rocade. “We
really see the company taking leadership on advancing the industry to
new ways of operating that benefit the airline and the customer and we
are very excited about being the newest members of the team.”

Sabre Airline Solutions will expand its current flight operations
base of over 120 customers through the acquisition — gaining 50-plus
incremental customers. The acquisition also will allow Sabre Airline
Solutions to significantly expand its sales and support to all of its
airline customers worldwide.

“We have made sure that smaller airlines no longer have to make do
with sub par technology or manual processes in today’s environment,”
said Klein. “The Sabre Airline Solutions flight operations and crew
portfolio offers the lowest cost and quick implementation they require

--  and often are the only systems an airline may need to fully
    automate its SOC and manage crew assignments. Smart technology is
    not just about the capabilities we provide, it's also making sure
    we provide it in way that is affordable and accessible for all
    airlines. The addition of the RM Rocade technology and expertise
    is another example of how we make that happen."
