Sabre Corporation, the leading technology provider to the global travel industry, and one of the leading travel agencies in the Kingdom of Bahrain, Al Safeer Travel has signed an exclusive multi-year agreement to continue usage of Sabre’s technology to manage the agency’s travel.
Al Safeer Travel will, under this agreement, continue to access Sabre’s intelligent platform, Sabre Red 360, allowing it to bring a higher degree of data, content, and flexibility to differentiate its offering.
The platform will also make the travel company compete more effectively and grow faster in the region.
Reacting to the agreement, vice president, Sabre Travel Network Middle East, Abdul-Razzaq Iyer said the relationship between the two companies has ensured more than 20 years of a successful strategic partnership which has, subsequently, enabled Al Safeer Travel to evolve into a leading travel company in the Middle East.
“Our exclusive renewed agreement with Al Safeer will continue to provide the best-in-class technology and seamless travel experiences for its customers. We look forward to continuing to work with Al Safeer Travel, and to find new ways to differentiate its offering and attract more business,” Iyer said.
As a result, Al Safeer Travel is investing in the latest technology and solutions as the Bahrain travel industry is rapidly growing, and its value is expected to reach $1 billion by 2020.
“We are delighted to renew our long-standing partnership with Sabre to support our expansion plans in the region,” Jamal Al Asoomi, general manager, Al Safeer Travel and Tours said.
