Sabre expands presence in Mongolia
Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), the leading technology provider to the global travel industry, has entered into a new distribution agreement with Aviation Services Mongolia (ASM) to distribute the Sabre global distribution system (GDS) in Mongolia. In tandem with this, ASM has successfully converted Air Market – Mongolia’s largest travel agency – to the Sabre GDS.
With the implementation effective this month, Air Market will have access to 750,000 global hotel properties, 400 international airlines, and hundreds of other services including car rental, rail and cruise providers through the Sabre travel marketplace. The partnership will help Air Market better cater to their customers’ travel needs, making it easier and more convenient for them to travel around the world regardless of their travel objectives, preferences and budgets.
“This new partnership makes Sabre the leading GDS in Mongolia and continues to cement our position as the leading travel technology partner in Asia Pacific. We are very proud of our partnership with ASM and look forward to growing even further in the region,” said Todd Arthur, vice president of Sabre Travel Network, Asia Pacific.
“As Mongolia’s economy continues to open and grow, we expect to see more outbound travel in the coming years. Likewise, travellers around the world are seeking more unique travel destinations, and Mongolia has been earmarked as a ‘must-visit’ holiday spot. Our technology will enable Air Market to support the growth and diverse options that travellers expect,” Arthur added.
Commenting on the agreement, Margad Byambajav, founder and CEO of ASM said, “We are excited to partner with Sabre and are confident that this partnership will allow for greater ease of travel into and out of Mongolia. We believe that there is further room for growth and look forward to broadening the tourism industry in Mongolia.”
