Sabre Airline Solutions Signs Agreement with Hawaiian Airlines to Provide Advanced Maintenance Software from Mxi Technologies; Industry-Leading Maintenix MRO System Will Be Delivered Via Sabre eMergo Web Access

2005–Sabre Airline Solutions, the industry leader in airline
operations technology, signed an agreement to serve Hawaiian Airlines’
maintenance and engineering (M&E) needs with the Maintenix system from
Mxi Technologies. The system replaces Hawaiian Airlines’ current M&E
solution — the Sabre Maxi-Merlin maintenance, engineering and
inventory system — and will be implemented as a hosted application
through Sabre eMergo Web access, an applications service provider
distribution method. The eMergo environment offers an economical way
to access the comprehensive functionality of the Maintenix system and
other products in the Sabre Airline Solutions portfolio, lowering the
total cost of ownership for Hawaiian Airlines.

The Maintenix system will provide Hawaiian Airlines total
visibility of maintenance and materials information throughout the
organization. This visibility results in streamlined maintenance and
inventory processes, and improved efficiency as technicians, managers,
and other personnel will have access to the data they need to perform
their jobs efficiently and effectively. The 12th-largest U.S.-based
carrier will employ all six components of the Maintenix system,
providing an advanced end-to-end maintenance and engineering solution
for its fleet of 25 Boeing 717 and 767 aircraft.

“We selected the offering following a competitive bid process
involving a due diligence assessment and an intensive five-day product
demonstration,” said Charles R. Nardello, vice president of
Maintenance and Engineering for Hawaiian Airlines. “Key factors in our
decision included the modern information technology architecture and
advanced technology of Maintenix system, its ability to manage all
levels of maintenance, and the expertise and high level of service we
have consistently received from Sabre Airline Solutions.”

In October, Hawaiian Airlines renewed and strengthened its
commitment to the SabreSonic Passenger Solutions, a suite of
new-generation passenger management solutions with one of the largest
renewals to date. The new agreement to implement the Maintenix system
strengthens the long-term, successful relationship between Sabre
Airline Solutions and Hawaiian Airlines.

“Hawaiian’s selection of Mxi’s technology from Sabre Airline
Solutions demonstrates a couple of major points,” said Steve Clampett,
president of Airline Products and Services for Sabre Airline
Solutions. “First, it reinforces the strong relationship we enjoy with
Hawaiian Airlines. It also serves as a testament to the quality of our
offerings and partnerships. The Maintenix system provides the kind of
smart, scalable, easy-to-access and easy-to-use technology we strive
to bring to our customers across their entire airline operations.”
