"The Qik Solution from Sabre is the best technology to help us tie our key systems together and present an efficient, easy-to-use interface to our staff serving our valued passengers," Kuramoto said.

ANA's Star Alliance partners Lufthansa, Air New Zealand, Asiana, Thai Airways International and South African Airways are also Sabre Qik Solution users.
