Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR) has reported it will deliver faster cloud-based, flight availability using solutions built on Amazon web services cloud (AWS), the company said.
The growth of mobile and higher consumer expectations for faster online searches continues to raise the bar for airlines to deliver a seamless online shopping experience. Leveraging the AWS Cloud, Sabre will offer airline availability solutions that will help carriers increase booking rates and deliver even faster responses.
Using Sabre´s new availability services in the cloud, airlines and their customers will benefit from faster shopping. And by relying on a single-source delivery of a cloud-based system, airlines can manage availability for different channels through one source. Working with Sabre, carriers will house their availability data in the AWS cloud which can then be accessed via multiple shopping channels, whether carrier website, online or offline travel agency, or other source. The new cloud-based solution will be available to Sabre´s customers later this year.
Sabre is a global technology provider to the USD7.0 trillion travel industry and serves customers operating in 160 countries including airlines, hotels, travel agents and online travel service providers. The company´s technology processes over USD120 billion of estimated travel spend and more than 1.1 billon system messages every year.
