Sabre has launched a GetThere pilot program that now allows corporate travelers to shop and book policy-compliant NDC offers from Sabre Beyond NDC partners American Airlines, Singapore Airlines and United Airlines.
After a booking is made, Travel Management Companies will be able to fulfill and ticket the booking in Sabre Red 360 without any disruption to their existing workflow. Finally, the Sabre suite of mid-back office solutions, including Trams and options from partners, is evolving to integrate NDC bookings into financial settlement and reporting processes.
“Through our collaborative ‘test-and-learn’ approach with select customers on NDC, we are making progress that will generate clear benefits as business travel recovers,” said Senior Director of Product Management, Saunvit Pandya. “With NDC, airlines will have greater flexibility in responding to shopping requests from corporate travelers. In a market demanding additional flexibility, we are excited to expand corporations’ access to more tailored content through this pilot.”
