Sabre has signed a long-term technology and commerce agreement with Belize’s Tropic Air, which will also adopt Sabre's connectivity standards and e-ticketing capabilities to deliver real-time pricing, seat availability, data and ticket changes for flights booked by Sabre-connected travel buyers.
The regional carrier, which operates over 200 daily flights to 16 destinations in Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, joins the Sabre global travel marketplace for the first time, and will use the Sabre software and e-commerce capabilities to market and sell its airfares. Sabre's distribution technology will contribute towards improvements in Tropic Air's commercial operations through instant booking confirmation and access to last-seat available inventory to business partners across channels, including agents, online agencies and corporate buyers.
Steven Schulte, CEO of Tropic Air, commented, "The agency channel will be a thriving enhancement to our marketing efforts, while increasing our brand visibility within one of the most competitive marketplaces for air travel. We've chosen Sabre's technology to accelerate our plans to put our products and services in front of the broadest global travel community, and build strategic partnerships that will create better service and revenue opportunities from our regional flights network."
