During the opening session of Sabre’s annual client conference, Sabre STC, President and CEO Sean Menke described a scene in the not-too-distant future when a traveler, facing flight cancellations on a routine trip from New York to Dallas, will feel different. For example, Menke said, instead of the client having to call their airline to be re-accommodated, a push notification will go out to the traveler’s smartphone based on their profile. Once they accept a new flight, say early the next day, their hotel will be contacted to reflect that new check-in date and time. “Think about how technology can push that to the ground transportation next, and update the car service provider. Since the hotel knows you have changes in your plans, they may give you the opportunity to do early check-in.” Get the full story at Travel Market Report
