Sabre Expands Services to Papua New Guinea

Sabre has signed an agreement with Air Niugini to distribute the Sabre global distribution system (GDS) in Papua New Guinea.

With this agreement, travel agents will adopt Sabre Red Workspace, Sabres point-of-sale solution which delivers a content-rich marketplace integrated with data-driven support tools.

Other solutions that Sabre will be bringing to the market include TripCase, an itinerary management tool that gives travellers the freedom to manage and stay connected with their latest trip details and to create new bookings, as well as Clipboard, a tool that helps travel agents quickly translate information from Sabre Red Workspace and configure information to meet their needs.
