Air India discontinues relationship with Sabre GDS
January 04, 2020: Air India has exited from Sabre Global Distribution System (GDS), Kristin Hays, vice president – global communications for Sabre declared.
“After a successful 20-year relationship, Air India has decided to discontinue distributing its content through the Sabre GDS. Consequently, Air India content is no longer available to Sabre-connected travel agencies, effective Jan 2. We are very disappointed that Air India decided to withdraw from Sabre. We believe that access to Sabre's global network of travel agencies provides great value to Air India,” she said.
Sabre GDS is owned by Sabre Corporation and is used by travel agents and companies around the world.
"We have worked with Air India for the better part of a year to reach a new agreement, in anticipation of the existing contract expiring and after receiving a termination notice from the carrier. Unfortunately, after extensive negotiations, we have been unable to come to a new agreement, she concluded.
