Canada Jetlines Partners with Sabre on Global Distribution Agreement

Canada Jetlines Operations Ltd. has announced a global distribution agreement with Sabre, a software and technology company. Per the new long-term agreement, Sabre will distribute the carrier’s comprehensive content for travel agencies and corporations through the Sabre travel marketplace (GDS), supporting Canada Jetlines in powering future revenue growth while reaching key market segments associated with the GDS.

Canada Jetlines will leverage Sabre’s ancillary services to provide travel agencies around the world with access to the airline’s range of travel products, including fares and seat availability.

“We are pleased to have achieved this agreement with Sabre, which broadens Canada Jetlines’ distribution capabilities to meet our international growth objectives,” shared Duncan Bureau, chief commercial officer of Canada Jetlines. “This partnership aligns with our projected distribution strategy of providing the right content in the right channel. As a leisure airline, Canada Jetlines recognizes the key role that travel agencies play in our success.”

The Sabre travel marketplace is instrumental in facilitating the marketing, sale and servicing of airfares, hotel rooms, rental cars, rail tickets and other types of travel to buyers around the world who use it to shop, book and manage travel.

Canada Jetlines will begin operations out of its travel hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), with its first scheduled route into Calgary International Airport (YYC) on September 22, 2022, with biweekly flights operating Thursdays and Sundays out of Toronto (YYZ) to Calgary (YYC) from 7:55 a.m. EST–10:10 a.m. MST and returns from YYC to YYZ 11:40 a.m. MST–17:20 p.m. EST. Frequency will increase to three flights per week, Thursdays through Sundays, starting later in the fall.

Travelers can book reservations and vacation packages with travel advisors who can earn up to 10 percent commission on all base fares when contracted directly with the airline.
