SOUTHLAKE, Texas & TEMPE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 2, 2006–Sabre Holdings (NYSE:TSG) and US Airways (NYSE: LCC) today announced that US Airways, the nation’s largest full-service, low-cost airline, has signed a new five-year, full content agreement with Sabre Travel Network.

Through the agreement, all US Airways published fares and inventory, whether flown under the America West or US Airways brand, including Web fares, are guaranteed to be available for all users 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 Web site and through its own Web site and reservation offices.

Concurrent with the agreement, US Airways, the fifth largest domestic airline, also signed a new long-term full content deal with Travelocity, which includes the Travelocity Partner Network, Travelocity’s private label booking business, as its exclusive hotel content supplier for the US Airways Web site.

“This is a great opportunity to provide value across our portfolio to help US Airways market and sell its products long term. It’s a milestone for both companies,” said Hugh Jones, chief operating officer, Sabre Travel Network. “Our travel agents, corporate travelers and consumers will now have unprecedented access to all published fares offered by US Airways. This long-term agreement reflects the unique capabilities of Sabre’s efficient marketplace that provides a comprehensive, global and real-time electronic supermarket for the buying and selling of travel.”

“Signing this agreement with Sabre not only provides attractive economics to US Airways, but it also ensures our most loyal customers will have easy access to our low fares through the distribution channel most convenient for them,” remarked Scott Kirby, US Airways executive vice president, sales and marketing. “Many of our top business customers regard Sabre as the most convenient and comprehensive way to book their travel. We’re extremely pleased with the agreement as it allows these customers to continue booking on US Airways through their existing systems.”
