Emirates content will once again be available for users in the Sabre marketplace after the two announced a new multi-year distribution deal.
The deal, which is effective on Oct. 5, comes after Emirates let its previously deal with Sabre expire at the end of June 2021. At the time, Sabre said that it was “disappointed” not to reach a deal with the carrier despite its best efforts.
The new deal, announced this week, will ensure that Emirates’ absence from Sabre’s marketplace was only a few months.
The deal includes access to Emirates’ NDC content, which has been a priority for Sabre for a number of years. Sabre expects that NDC content to start to roll out during the first half of 2022. Sabre also said it expects more details about Emirates’ offerings, including opt-in process, to be revealed by the end of 2021.
“We are excited to resume our distribution partnership with Emirates and thank you for your continued support and business,” Sabre said in a message to its users this week.
