Copa Airlines’ complete fares, schedules and inventory offering is available for agents and corporations using Sabre GDS
Southlake, Oct. 3, 2012 – Sabre Travel Network, a global technology company serving travel agencies and suppliers, has recently extended a multi-year agreement with Copa Airlines to distribute its full content to travel agencies and corporations connected to the Sabre global distribution system (GDS).
The new agreement assures Copa Airlines’ full content to more than 350,000 travel agencies using the Sabre Red Workspace software worldwide, as well as for hundreds of companies managing their travel programs with Sabre BizSite and GetThere as online booking tools. Agents will continue to benefit from electronic ticketing and real-time inventory access at the time of booking, while business travelers will count on Copa Airlines’ flights for trips in adherence with corporate policies.
Sabre will also support Copa Airlines’ merchandising strategy, which is still in development, providing them with Sabre’s latest shopping technology with enhanced access for agents.
“By renewing our agreement with Copa Airlines, Sabre continues our strong business relationship with Copa, supporting their distribution strategy and providing the latest technology developed by Sabre,” said Jay Jones, senior vice president for Sabre Travel Network, The Americas. “Our agency and corporate customers will continue to be able to access Copa’s full-content and real-time availability, both essential capabilities in the transparent process to shop and book the best travel options for the traveler.”
“By extending our agreement with Sabre, we are definitely strengthening our partnership” said Joe Mohan, commercial vice president for Copa Airlines. “This way we guarantee that our complete fares will be available to all Sabre’s users worldwide.”
