Sabre signs key Oman agreement
Manama, November 26, 2009
Bahrain-headquartered Sabre Travel Network Middle East (STNME) has signed an agreement with Oman's National Hospitality Institute (NHI) to offer Sabre courses to its students.
This follows a similar agreement with Al Manar University in Lebanon earlier this year.
Sabre Travel Network provides multi-channel travel technology solutions such as multi-channel retailing, merchandising and procurement to enable over 55,000 travel agencies and thousands of corporations and government agencies to efficiently access, shop and book content from airlines, hotels, car rental companies, cruise lines and more.
The NHI is a provider of quality vocational training for the travel industries in the Gulf region, and offers solutions to the sector whilst simultaneously providing jobs and career planning to all of its students.
The institute has state-of-the-art training facilities in the Wadi Kabir district of Muscat.
'With our multi-channel distribution strategy, we are able to provide the most efficient, comprehensive, global and real-time electronic supermarket for the buying and selling of travel,' STNME chief executive officer Daniel Naoumovitch said.
'By partnering with the NHI, we can ensure that tomorrow's top travel professionals have the expertise to take full advantage of our services and products, from booking and ticketing air reservations to building customer profiles and automating repetitive tasks.
'By optimally utilising our leading technology and expertise, our travel partners can make and save money for their businesses and enhance customer service such as providing customers with mobile itineraries,' he added.
'Now with Sabre providing courses for the use of its global distribution system directly to our students, we can rest assured that they will have access to the very latest in travel technology which will ensure that once they leave our training establishment they will be better able to compete for the best jobs in the industry whilst being fully versed in the technical facilities available to travel agencies,' NHI principal Robert MacLean added.-TradeArabia News Service
