Pakistan Extends Deal with Sabre

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has extended its distribution agreement with Sabre Travel Network for a further five years. As part of the agreement it has upgraded its participation in the Sabre global distribution system (GDS) to Direct Connect Availability (DCA), the highest level of connectivity. This gives agents access to real-time information about an airline's last seat availability and fares. The Pakistani carrier is implementing added-value products from Sabre Travel Network, including e-ticketing capability for Sabre-connected travel agents in the U.S. and Canadian markets, with other markets to follow shortly, and the Claim It reservations product which allows travel agencies to take ownership of, or claim Passenger Name Records (PNRs) created by the airline, directly from the Sabre system.
