Six Carriers Select Enhanced Crew Management Solution on Linux Platform; By Implementing the AirCrews Pairing Optimizer, the Carriers Can Reduce Crew-Related Costs by up to 10 Percent.

SOUTHLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 15, 2005–Air Jamaica,
Frontier Airlines, Mesa Air Group, Spirit Airlines, Skyservice
Airlines and Atlantic Southeast Airlines have joined the growing list
of carriers that have chosen to deploy the Sabre AirCrews Pairing
Optimizer on the Linux operating system, a freeware operating system
that can run on a desktop, to reduce crew-related costs.

The Pairing Optimizer enables airlines to generate optimal legal
pairings that achieve desired business goals, which helps reduce the
number of crew-related flight cancellations and delays as well as
decrease crew-related costs by up to 10 percent. Through a variety of
“what-if” scenarios, the system enables the airlines to determine the
financial ramifications of changes in labor contracts or proposed
federal aviation rules before they are implemented.

“Since we’ve implemented the Pairing Optimizer, we’ve seen
tremendous improvement in our ability to manage our crew resources,”
said George Webster, Director of Systems Operations Control for
Frontier Airlines. “Using the system, we are able to optimize our crew
schedule while complying with all federal regulations and labor

Sabre Airline Solutions continuously invests in new technology and
optimization techniques that make the Pairing Optimizer one of the
leading optimizers in the industry. These investments have resulted in
benefits for users of this sophisticated, cost-saving tool to help
address issues in the current environment — specifically better
optimization solutions with increased cost efficiencies, faster run
times and a more user-friendly product experience.

“Our goal is to give airlines easy-to-access and implement
technology that provides a quick return on investment,” said Steve
Clampett, president of Airline Products and Services for Sabre Airline
Solutions. “Airlines, such as these six carriers, can leverage the
investments we make, including the versatility of the Pairing
Optimizer, to stay competitive in this dynamic marketplace.”

To date, airlines around the globe have implemented the Pairing
Optimizer on the UNIX platform. To help meet the growing market need,
Sabre Airline Solutions is now also making the Pairing Optimizer
available on the Linux platform. By operating on the Linux platform,
the Pairing Optimizer enables all types of airlines, regardless of
size or business model, to utilize its industry-leading algorithms to
reduce crew costs. Offering both the UNIX and Linux platforms provides
the ability for airlines without an extensive information technology
infrastructure or support staff to deploy the system on standard
personal computers, giving analysts the ability to conduct better
what-if analysis as well as vastly improve crew planning operations.

Mesa, Air Jamaica and Frontier are already utilizing the Pairing
Optimizer on the Linux platform, and ASA, Spirit and Skyservice will
implement the system this month.
