Travel technology leader Sabre Corporation is taking airline passengers to the clouds, announcing today that it will deliver even faster cloud-based flight availability using solutions built on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud.
The explosive growth of mobile and higher consumer expectations for faster online searches continue to raise the bar for airlines to deliver a seamless online shopping experience. Leveraging the AWS Cloud, Sabre will offer airline availability solutions that will help carriers increase booking rates and deliver even faster responses. Using Sabre’s new availability services in the cloud, airlines and their customers will benefit from faster shopping. And by relying on a single-source delivery of a cloud-based system, airlines can manage availability for different channels through one source. Working with Sabre, carriers will house their availability data in the AWS Cloud which can then be accessed via multiple shopping channels, whether carrier website, online or offline travel agency, or other source. The new cloud-based solution will be available to Sabre’s customers later this year.
“AWS provides powerful cloud services to customers and is constantly innovating to deliver new services and features to meet its customers’ needs. We share that same philosophy at Sabre and choose collaborators that share our vision and commitment to innovation and customer deliverables,” said Tom Klein, president and CEO of Sabre. “As the world moves to a computing ecosystem dominated by mobile devices, speed and frictionless transactions are the expected norm, and the cloud delivers those benefits. Our customers use Sabre solutions because they want only the best, and the AWS relationship will further enhance our ability to deliver even faster and better offerings.”
Sabre is the leading global technology provider to the $7 trillion travel industry and serves customers operating in 160 countries including airlines, hotels, travel agents and online travel service providers. The company’s technology processes over $120 billion of estimated travel spend and more than 1.1 billon system messages every year.
“The AWS Cloud provides enterprises around the world with powerful benefits like agility, scalability and reliability so they can focus on their customers’ needs and driving further growth for their businesses,” said Mike Clayville, vice president, Worldwide Sales, AWS. “We’re excited to work together with Sabre as they build and grow their airline availability solutions on the AWS Cloud, offering their customers even better, faster technology travel solutions.”
