SABRE PRESENTS A GLOBAL VISION FOR THE ASIA PACIFIC TRAVEL COMMUNITY AS ABACUS REBRANDS
SINGAPORE, November 2, 2015 – Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), the leading technology provider to the global travel industry has announced a rebrand of all its acquired Abacus assets in Asia Pacific, effective today. Over 100 wholly owned and affiliated offices across the region will now operate as Sabre, with travel agency and supplier customers engaging with their local teams at Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific and via an expanded corporate domain at www.sabre.com/apac. The rebrand reflects Sabre’s aim of connecting its entire travel community so that Asia Pacific agents can shop the world’s largest marketplace for travel, while suppliers gain access to a global distribution channel of over 425,000 on and offline wholesale, corporate and leisure travel outlets. “The rebrand recognizes the global potential of Asia Pacific’s evolving travel businesses, especially those focused on the opportunities online,” said Roshan Mendis, senior vice president of Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific. “We want every travel agent and regional supplier to readily access our global and local software, data, mobile and distribution services, to enjoy the benefit of one unified and market-aligned global Sabre brand.” From today, www.abacus.com.sg visitors will transfer to www.sabre.com/apac to discover more about the global travel technology leader and its presence, support and investment in the Asia Pacific region. “For our customers and prospects, the message is that Sabre is the partner of choice for faster shared innovation and accelerated growth. We will help all our Asia Pacific customers to compete in new markets and win,” added Mendis. Today’s brand change also coincides with Sabre’s acquisition of a third national marketing company, based in Malaysia to follow Singapore and Hong Kong. Abacus Distribution Systems (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd is now a wholly owned, integral part of one Sabre. For more, visit: http://www.sabre.com/locations/apac/releases … READ MORE
Abacus Poll Measures the Gap between Supply and Demand for Low Cost Carrier Content on Online Travel Agent Sites
[ezcol_1half id=”” class=”” style=””] Providing a snapshot of the key issues for online travel agencies in the Asia Pacific region, Abacus is today sharing the findings of an ‘Online Travel Poll.’ This August the region’s leading travel technology provider questioned 62 travel agents invested in the online space on various aspects of their digital businesses and the revenues achieved. Comprising a mix of agency types, some regional, some traditional or niche, one in five were dedicated almost entirely to online business. Those more offline tended to fulfil that way, even if the query originated on the net, while those focused on online revenues tended to process the entire transaction digitally. Flight search served as the primary function of their sites with 82 per cent confirming that they sell air tickets online. Almost three-quarters offer accommodation and cross-sell other products. The ability to present competitive fares, including those of low cost carriers (LCCs), was seen as vital to the offering for most. But, while 42 per cent of participants acknowledged LCCs as having a ‘major presence’ in their markets, 60 per cent were unable to display and sell their inventory. Only 29 per cent of the agents have any agreements with budget carriers, the rest either excluded them from their search results or, as one in seven admitted, ‘screen-scrape’ the LCCs’ sites for the sake of content comprehensiveness. As further evidence of the disparity between supply and demand, almost a third stated ‘we ignore LCCs and focus on airlines that can be booked through our online booking engine.’ “We cannot assume users of these travel agents’ sites are familiar with all the airlines operating on their chosen routes, or to know where else to look to compare the available fares,” explained Martin Symes, VP Product & Marketing at Abacus International. “An LCC’s absence places the carrier, the intermediary and the consumer at a disadvantage.” Having bridged the content divide, though it seems other gaps appear. Where online travel agents are able to book LCCs, the low cost model, with fares often lacking flexibility and the emphasis on ancillary revenue generation, selling and servicing is made more challenging. One third of the agents cited a problem with ancillaries in quoting the total price. “It’s a snapshot of where we are on this important debate,” cautioned Symes. “In other parts of the world including the US, Europe and Australia, we have witnessed major LCCs work to gain share of the higher yielding corporate market, by evolving their products and GDS participation levels. It will be interesting to see if this is replicated here in Asia.” “LCCs in this region now have the ability to engage the trade in many different ways, given innovation in the distribution technology. They can readily scale a B2B model to complement their direct focus,” he added. Confirming the growing and largely untapped corporate opportunity, almost three-quarters of the corporate agents responding to the recent Abacus Corporate Travel Practices Survey noted greater demand for LCC seats from their clients. The LCCs distributing through the GDS appear to be reaping rewards too. The budget carriers integrated with Abacus have seen business from the channel grow by an average of 86 per cent over this last year.

Four More Asian Carriers Adopt Abacus Paperless EMD Technology
[ezcol_1half id=”” class=”” style=””] Abacus International, the leading travel solutions provider in Asia Pacific, today announced that four more Asian carriers have adopted the Abacus electronic miscellaneous document (EMD) technology: Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Cathay Pacific, together with Hong Kong-based Dragonair. Responding to the IATA mandate for all miscellaneous documents issued from January 2014 to be electronic, many airlines have partnered with Abacus to implement the required proprietary technology, creating a new paperless ticketing environment. Beyond the benefits of full digitization, carriers gain the ability to track their ancillary sales, with Abacus e-coupons for lounge access, baggage, in-flight Wifi and more. Databases will be more closely aligned with the trade channel on transactions. “With Abacus EMD, airlines can simultaneously go green, drive efficiencies and boost yields,” explained Division Head, Airline Distribution at Abacus, Ho Hoong Mau. “We are delighted to help four more powerful brands in Asia’s burgeoning aviation industry to achieve the EMD standard, realizing the benefits in terms of cash and credit card reimbursements and ancillary sales through the region’s trade channel.” Lee Ser Yi, Vice President, Corporate Sales and Distribution, Singapore Airlines added, “Adopting the Abacus EMD solution allows Singapore Airlines to improve our customer experience by automating miscellaneous fees and deposit payments, while reducing paper dependency and related costs. We are pleased to be able to take this to our key customers through Abacus.” Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, Cathay Pacific and Dragonair join the extensive list of global airlines who have adopted the Abacus EMD solution, contributing to IATA’s planned sunset of the legacy virtual Miscellaneous Charge Order (vMCO).
