Sabre, United Extend Distribution Agreement

Sabre Travel Network and United Airlines signed a two-year extension of their current full-content agreement that ensures full United content in the Sabre Global Distribution System (GDS) through 2013. United’s current distribution agreement with Sabre Travel Network was set to expire in 2011.

“This mutually beneficial agreement shows that United Airlines believes in the value of this distribution channel and the current GDS model, that’s why they are in the Sabre GDS today and why they want to continue that participation,” said Hugh Jones, chief operating officer, Sabre Travel Network. “This agreement extension assures all Sabre Connected travel agents that they will have efficient access to United’s full content for quite some time.”

Through the extension of the distribution agreement with Sabre Travel Network, all United published fares and inventory will be available for subscribers of the Sabre GDS, including online and offline travel agencies. This includes published fares that the airline sells through any third-party Web site and through its own Web site and reservation offices.
