easyJet has renewed its agreement with Sabre which will enable corporate travel agencies across Europe to continue to have access to easyJet fares through the Sabre GDS.
Approximately 20% of easyJet’s passengers travel for business. The airline’s agreement with Sabre helps easyJet continue serving this important corporate segment.
Peter Duffy, easyJet’s commercial director, commented, “easyJet made its inventory available through the GDS in 2007 and it remains of paramount importance to have a key distributor like Sabre accessing our fares including key products like inclusive fares and corporate negotiated fares.
“We continue to deliver on the strategy we launched in 2010 to increase our appeal to the business travel sector. Enhancements including allocated seating, inclusive fares and Fast Track Security have all played a part in enabling easyJet to attract more business passengers.”
The GDS relationships easyJet has built have enabled it to grow its presence in the business travel market successfully. The airline has also signed a large number of corporate contracts in the past five years.
