WestJet Airlines and Sabre Holdings Corporation have successfully completed the implementation phase of their distribution partnership.
WestJet is now a full availability participant on the Sabre GDS and travel agents worldwide can view and book WestJet flights. Bill Lamberton, WestJet Airlines Vice President, Marketing and Sales said, “We are very pleased to have completed the preparation necessary to become a full availability booking partner with Sabre. As WestJet grows and enhances our schedule, the wider distribution through Sabre will become an essential component of our success.”
“With WestJet on the Sabre system, our travel partners have a complete list of competitive low fare flights right at their fingertips for the benefit of customers,” said Tracy Cooper, vice president and general manager of the Canadian division of Sabre. “This latest offering gives agents easy access to a more enhanced product line and boosts their productivity by maximising the time they spend in the Sabre system.” WestJet Airlines will continue to operate its own call centre, as well as offer bookings over its Internet site.
