Kanoo renews Sabre contract
KANOO Travel and Sabre Travel Network Middle East have announced the signing of a multi-year renewal contract.
This move reaffirms the agency’s preference for the Sabre Global Distribution System (GDS) and strengthens a long-term partnership between the region’s largest travel agency and the world’s leading GDS.
The multi-year renewal deal further equips Kanoo Travel with sophisticated tools that drive operational efficiency, enhance customer service, reduce costs and increase revenues through Sabre Travel Network Middle East’s provision of enhanced technology services, bookable travel products and distribution services.
“Kanoo Travel has used Sabre solutions for several years and our multi-year renewal agreement allows us to further extend our partnership with a technology and content provider whose growth strategy is driven by a committed presence throughout the region. This has created tremendous value for our agency community far beyond competitor offerings,” says Kanoo Travel executive general manager Abdulla M Abo Khamseen.
The agreement enables travel consultants to gain access to enriched functionality through the MySabre web-based booking tool that combines traditional products bookable in the Sabre system, such as airlines, car hire, hotels, cruise and rail, with content from the Internet and third-party suppliers.
Travel consultants across Kanoo Travel’s network are being trained by Sabre’s specialised trainers on the company’s latest and enhanced solutions and ongoing support is also accessible round-the-clock through help desk facilities in Bahrain and Dubai.
Daniel Naoumovitch, Sabre Travel Network Middle East’s chief executive officer, says: “The renewal of this agreement with Kanoo Travel and other similar partnerships demonstrates our commitment to working with the top names in the region’s travel industry and reaffirms a growing demand for Sabre solutions.”
