Oman Air renews Sabre solutions deal
Muscat, August 4, 2012
Oman Air, the national flag carrier of the Sultanate, said it has renewed its reservations technology agreement with Sabre Airline Solutions.
The multi-year agreement extends a long and established partnership between Oman Air and Sabre for the technology driving the airline’s growth and improvements across all its customer-focused operations.
Maher Koubaa, Sabre Airline Solutions’ vice president for the Middle East and Africa, said: “Oman Air’s appetite for technology gives them a competitive edge in the market and allows them to explore new revenue opportunities and experiment with new products for customers.”
“Sabre’s reservations technology is one of the industry’s most powerful revenue-generating system and will support the airline’s drive for business efficiencies and top customer service.”
Wayne Pearce, chief executive of Oman Air, said: 'It is important to work with the right technology partners in such a competitive marketplace.'
'Sabre’s stable and well-proven reservations technology means we provide a trouble-free travel experience to our passengers,' remarked Pearce.
“The technology provides significant value and return on investment, and in turn gives us the flexibility to offer a widening array of other value-added services to our customers,” he added.
Koubaa said the Oman Air deal reinforces Sabre's already strong footprint in the Middle East region, where the company is the preferred technology partner for customer-focused airlines pursuing an aggressive growth strategy.-TradeArabia News Service
