“We chose to work with Sabre as its innovative technology will help us meet our company goals of providing the greatest choice and personalisation when booking travel,” said Imran Patel, co-owner and director at 360 Travel Group. Noaman Moghul, co-owner, added: “Sabre’s platform will enable us to meet the growing demands of our travellers in the United Kingdom, who demand and expect increasingly personalised itineraries and a higher level of expertise.”
Sabre will play a critical role in helping 360 Travel Group increase productivity and achieve its growth objectives. Its new Sabre Red workspace was developed to meet the changing needs and expectations of travellers – a modern technology platform built around its core GDS infrastructure that provides a greater choice of services and added value to customers of travel agents. Sabre has also integrated its Dev Studio APIs – which provide market data, fare trend information, travel seasonality and alternative airports – into the platform. These APIs are then displayed in a new Decision Support Bar, which 360 Travel Group will be able to use to offer advanced information and choices to its customers.
“The UK is a fast-growing market, with travel demand forecast to rise almost 4% per year for the next four years,” said Dean Bibb, interim senior vice president at Sabre. “This growth in travel comes alongside the wealth of choice today’s travellers now have at their fingertips – through a raft of apps and channels. They now expect to get the services they want, through whichever booking channel they decide to use. They also value rich experiences and high levels of personalisation, as well as the ability to unbundle every component of a ticket to match their needs. In order to help 360 Travel tap into UK growth and meet the demands of a fast-evolving market, we have created industry-first technology that will enable its agents to connect with suppliers to give travellers what they want and expect.”
