Sabre Travel Network Signs European Full Content Agreement with KLM; Deal Enhances Sabre’s Existing Global Relationship with One of Europe’s Largest Airlines

SOUTHLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 20, 2006–Sabre Travel
Network has signed a ‘multi-year’ full content agreement with KLM

airline’s direct reservation outlets and its website,, will

Resfeber. Travelers using these sites, and European business travelers
using the GetThere online corporate travel booking tool, will have
access not only to all published KLM fares and inventory, but also to
the airline’s full range of web-fares and content.

as a key business partner who can add value to our product
distribution globally and, very specifically, right here in Europe.”
