Under this agreement, Vietnam Airlines’ content will continue to be distributed through Sabre’s leading global travel marketplace, further supporting its growth objectives.
“This renewed partnership with Vietnam’s national carrier helps to strengthen the brand as they continue to expand globally and implement an ambitious business plan,” Rakesh Narayanan, vice president, air line of business, Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific. “We are pleased that Vietnam Airlines acknowledges Sabre as a strategic partner, based on the tested and proven solutions that we offer, which have generated impressive results over the course of our 24-year relationship.
