It’s now been over a year since Sabre Travel Network first ventured into the APAC region, and things are looking pretty sweet for the global travel tech company moving forward.

Sabre Travel Network, one of the leading travel technology and GDS companies in the industry, is happy to report a year of growth since first expanding into APAC through its acquisition of Abacus International back in July 2015.

Speaking from Sabre Travel Network’s regional headquarters in Singapore, Roshan Mendis, senior vice president for Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific, said the company has done really well in establishing itself in APAC a year ago.

“We’ve come a long way in just one year, connecting local teams, knowledge and customers with Sabre’s global network of travel content and technology.

Among some of the key areas the company has focused on in the past year include innovation and more advanced customer service, which is what the industry is calling for in order to keep up with the likes of online travel.

Indeed, moving forward, Mendis and the rest of the team at Sabre Travel Network are looking at how they can do more for both travel retailers and suppliers “in a landscape framed by growing traveller demands for relevancy, speed, choice and personalisation.”

Last week, Sabre gave travel insiders a sneak peek into a major new release of its travel agency booking platform, Sabre Red Workspace, which will evolve the way travel is shopped and sold.

The Sabre Travel Network business now extends across 29 markets in Asia Pacific with over 2,000 local staff – a number which will continue to grow – serving approximately 20,000 travel agency customers.

What kind of innovation do you hope to see in travel industry technology?
