Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 21 November 2008

United Airlines has signed an extension to its current full-content agreement with Sabre Travel Network.

Through the 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, thats 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 Uniteds full content for quite some time.

Uniteds 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.
