DSL Travel renews and expands long-term relationship with Sabre to support aggressive expansion plans

The international ticketing wholesaler will be using Sabre’s technology to forge new customer and partner relationships, and further extend geographic reach

SINGAPORE and Jakarta, INDONESIA,   – April 20, 2023 – Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), a leading software and technology provider that powers the global travel industry, today announced a long-term renewal, and expanded agreement, with one of Indonesia’s largest and fastest growing travel agencies. Jakarta-headquartered DSL Travel will continue to be part of Sabre’s extensive Global Distribution System (GDS), as well as supporting wider growth in the Indonesian travel market through Sabre’s intuitive agency workflows. 

DSL Travel will continue to access Sabre’s marketplace of over 400 airlines, 750,000 hotel properties, and hundreds of tour operators, rail, car, and cruise providers, providing opportunities to create and sell personalized packages for individual, and groups of, travelers. Through Sabre’s browser-based Sabre Red Web workspace, DSL will also be giving its expanding network of sub-agencies the ability to conduct business anytime and anywhere, while ticket issuance is centrally managed and controlled by the wholesaler.  

“As Indonesia renews its focus on quality tourism, it is vital that we have the right technology to create significant growth opportunities for our own business, for our agency partners, and across the wider Indonesian travel ecosystem,” said Doni Usman, director and owner of DSL Travel. “Through Sabre’s GDS, we can ensure we have seamless access to the industry-leading content needed to create the experiences our travelers want, while using the Sabre Red Web agency workspace to exponentially expand our own network of travel agencies.”
