Africa World Airlines, Sabre Travel Network announce GDS partnership
The leading technology provider to the global travel industry, Sabre Travel Network West Africa has announced a new content distribution agreement with Ghana-based African World Airlines (AWA) even amidst the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Effective immediately, Sabre-connected travel agencies can now access Africa World Airlines content on the Global Distribution System.
With the aim of becoming the number-one regional airline in West Africa, the partnership with Africa World Airlines will provide Sabre’s extensive network of travel agents with the airline’s content via its rich regional travel marketplace.
In addition to this agreement, the Africa World Airlines’ agreement with Sabre will also support the carrier’s business strategy by driving its expansion and profitability, tapping into code-share and partnership sales, and expanding ancillary sales.
It will also incorporate features that include availability, shopping, booking, and ticketing for all travelers.
This relationship will also allow Africa World Airlines to further strengthen its presence in Ghana, as well as West Africa and beyond – with African countries hoping to cash in on projected annual growth of 4.6% in passenger demand on the continent until 2037, driven by booming business and tourism travel.
In addition to this, Sabre’s partnership with Africa World Airlines will also help to support domestic demand for air travel which is one of the most convenient ways to travel within Ghana. The agreement with Sabre’s leading Global Distribution System will also have a positive impact on both Africa World Airlines and Ghana’s travel economy.
Thus, African World Airlines (AWA) content is available through all Sabre booking options, including the Sabre Red 360.
