SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Apr 18, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) — SynXis, the Sabre Holdings (NYSE:TSG) business that
provides reservation management, distribution and technology services
for hotels around the world, announced today that Hong Kong Disneyland
has selected the RedX Distribution Management System to process its
electronic reservations and to facilitate the promotion of its
products to travel agents around the world.
Hong Kong is the newest member of the Disney family and guests can
stay in the heart of the magic by choosing from two imaginatively
themed Hong Kong Disneyland properties — the luxurious
Victorian-style Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel or the glamorous tribute to
Hollywood’s Golden Age, Disney’s Hollywood Hotel. Both properties will
be represented by SynXis under the YX chain code.
The SynXis marketing team will assist Hong Kong Disneyland in
achieving its goal of building awareness in the travel agent
community. Together with Sabre Travel Network, SynXis and the Disney
properties will educate travel agents not only on Disney’s
availability in the GDSs, but also on the magical services that Hong
Kong Disneyland provides its guests.
“We would like to focus on educating travel agents throughout Asia
on our properties and make sure that rooms are available through
electronic reservations,” commented Josh D’Amaro, Vice President,
Sales and Travel Trade Marketing of Hong Kong Disneyland.
“We are thrilled to add another group of Disneyland hotels to our
portfolio of customers,” said David Meltzer, Vice President of Sales
for SynXis. “They have proven to be forward thinking in their approach
to marketing their properties around the world and our international
experience makes us a great fit.”
