SOUTHLAKE, Texas – Jan. 31, 2023 – Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), a leading software and technology provider that powers the global travel industry, today announced a new, long-term agreement with System Distribution Czech S.R.O (SDC). The alliance will give travel agents in the Czech Republic enhanced opportunities to access and leverage Sabre technology and products.
With this relationship, Prague-headquartered technology company SDC will be able to distribute Sabre technology to travel agencies across the Czech Republic. The agreement broadens Sabre’s reach in central Europe while helping travel agencies in the Czech Republic to benefit from a combination of Sabre’s expertise and innovation, together with regional knowledge and local language support.
“As the tourism industry, and traveler expectations, continue to evolve, it is essential that travel agents, corporations and suppliers have access to the advanced, intuitive technology they need to grow their own businesses while creating enhanced, personalized traveler experiences,” said Jan Berger, CEO, SDC. “We’re thrilled to form this alliance with Sabre as the travel industry recovery continues with corporate and leisure bookings growing rapidly and as the Czech Republic welcomes back increasing numbers of international tourists.”
The agreement will provide travel agents in the Czech Republic with increased opportunities, through SDC, to access Sabre solutions and services that encompass the entire retailing, fulfilment, and distribution journey. These include Sabre Red 360, Sabre’s customizable, intuitive interface, which provides a full spectrum of bookable content so travel agencies can create tailored trip experiences, helping to enable increased revenue opportunities and enhanced traveler satisfaction.
“Just like the global travel ecosystem, the travel industry in the Czech Republic is facing both challenges and opportunities,” said Salman Syed, vice president – agency sales, Sabre Travel Solutions. “While incoming tourism in the Czech Republic shows strong recovery, outbound travel is just starting to come back. New strategies are emerging, including a focus on new geographic markets and higher-end, cultural trips. We’re delighted that our new relationship with SDC will bring travel industry players increased access to the technology they need to create and service the trips that best suit their individual business models.”
