SINGAPORE, April 2, 2018- (NASDAQ: SABR), the leading technology provider to the global travel industry, today announced a new agreement with Lanmei Airlines and JC International Airlines, two rapidly expanding carriers based in Cambodia, who will now offer their content to travel agencies across the globe.
The announcement of this new partnership is timely, as data reveals that inbound tourism reached an all-time high in Cambodia last year, and the growth of these figures is not expected to slow down any time soon. A recent report from CAPA – Centre for Aviation indicates that the rise in tourism throughout Cambodia is driving an important shift in the aviation industry. With seven airlines now in operation across the country, in comparison to just two only four years ago, start-up airlines such as Lanmei and JC International are shaping the future of Cambodia’s air travel infrastructure.
“As the leading GDS in Cambodia, Sabre is pleased to support the rapid development of two of Cambodia’s growing carriers. With these new partnerships, Sabre will provide both Lanmei Airlines and JC International Airlines access to innovative solutions, enabling the addition of new bookable content on our platform,” said Rakesh Narayanan, vice president, air line of business, Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific. “Cambodia’s travel industry is changing. By providing our new partners with the technology they need to embrace industry shifts, access to our global network of agents will help them achieve their business objectives as they shape Cambodia’s travel industry,” he added.
“Making our content available to a wide range of domestic and international consumers is central to our strategic vision. Our partnership with Sabre will not only help propel our brand globally, but also play a crucial role in the future success of our business,” said Eric Li, deputy general manager, commercial department, Lanmei Airlines.
“Building a partnership with a leading technology partner such as Sabre supports our plan to further expand operations. As we continue to invest in our success, Sabre will provide us with the necessary network to support the massive wave of inbound tourism that Cambodia is witnessing,” added Tang Chun, CEO of JC (CAMBODIA) International Airlines.
Sabre announces these new partnerships with Lanmei Airlines and JC International Airlines as they take on more aircrafts and establish new routes across the Asia Pacific region, and to further anchor itself as a trusted technology partner for Cambodia’s travel industry.
