SOUTHLAKE, Texas – June 15, 2021 –Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), a leading software and technology provider that powers the global travel industry, has partnered with travel risk management platform GOPASS Global to help deliver its game-changing COVID-19 biosecurity risk analytics capabilities to the travel industry.
GOPASS Global solutions support both corporate and leisure travelers to recommence travel with confidence through the use of advanced analytics to deliver a single view of all the biosecurity risk elements of a trip. Joining the Sabre Developer Partner platform will help GOPASS Global to further improve its competitive position in the global travel marketplace, while further expanding Sabre’s innovative open platform, which sits at the intersection of supply and demand.
GOPASS travel risk management capabilities are now available to travel agents across the globe. By integrating with Sabre’s shopping APIs, GOPASS populates a quantifiable risk score onto each travel option and displays the information to agents, who are then able to better advise their customers.
“For the travel industry to open up, recover and grow, it is vital that we are able to reduce and mitigate the risk of travel so we can instill renewed confidence in travel for both the leisure and corporate traveler,” said Mark Radford, CEO, GOPASS Global. “It’s clear leisure travelers want to know about potential travel risks so they can avoid or mitigate them. But this is especially critical for corporate travel as we learn to live with this pandemic. Companies need to ensure they are taking their duty of care to employees seriously when it comes to travel. It’s essential, therefore that travel agents, and ultimately travelers, have all of the critical information they need at their fingertips when planning their trip to make the decisions that are right for them.”
Powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence, GOPASS Travel Risk Optimizer provides travelers with an end-to-end analysis of all aspects of travel and their risk exposure in the cycle of travel, including arrival and exit restrictions, flight routes and transit, airports, airline and aircraft type, seat class and travel advisories. GOPASS Global data also looks at country conditions such as infection rates, government policies and data reliability. Putting this all together, agents can obtain a risk score out of ten per flight itinerary, enabling them to clearly identify the lowest risk rates overall.
“Sabre’s vast portfolio of services allows Developer Partners to create value across the entire traveler journey; from inspiration, and shopping to post booking so we’re thrilled to be supporting GOPASS Global as one of Sabre’s approved developer partners,” said Marcos Pinedo, vice president, partner solutions for Sabre Travel Solutions. “GOPASS Global helps to simplify and shorten the shopping and booking workflow for agents by providing all information required at shopping time, helping them to be true travel experts for their customers and enabling travelers to recommence travel with confidence. Our new partnership with GOPASS Global is also a testament to Sabre’s ongoing commitment to breaking down walls in the travel technology industry at a time when collaboration is more important than ever.”
