United Airlines has signed an extension
to its current full-content agreement with Sabre Travel Network.
two-year extension of the distribution agreement, all United published fares and inventory will be available for
subscribers of the Sabre global distribution system (GDS), including online and offline travel agencies. This includes published fares that the
airline sells through any third-party website and through its own website and reservation offices.
“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.”
United’s current distribution agreement with Sabre Travel Network was set to expire in 2011. The extension signed
keeps the full content
distribution agreement in place until 2013.
