Sabre announced a new agreement with Flight Centre Travel Group to provide its industry-leading distribution services as well as the new Sabre Red Workspace to Flight Centre travel agents in Australia and New Zealand. This new agreement comes following continued growth and success of Flight Centre’s relationship with Sabre in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
Under the agreement, Flight Centre Travel Group will use the Sabre GDS as one of its key platforms to shop, book and manage travel content from among 400 airlines, 900,000 hotel options, 24 car rental brands and 14 cruise lines.
FLT Managing Director Graham Turner said: "We are delighted to have extended our relationship with Sabre. One of our key global strategies has been to increase productivity and we believe that Sabre's strong product suite, which is now fully implemented in Australia and New Zealand, will help us build on the success we are already having in this regard."
“Flight Centre is a thought leader and ours is a natural partnership. We share a common belief and vision that the right technology solutions coupled with scale and innovation will deliver the kind of shopping and retailing experience that travellers want, while delivering the efficiency and speed that agents need,” said Wade Jones, President of Sabre Travel Network. “Since expanding our relationship and rolling out the new Sabre Red Workspace, Flight Centre travel agents are already seeing the promising results that we expect from our highly-intuitive and ultra-fast desktop solution.”
