Jeju Air deepens partnership with Sabre

Sabre Corporation has renewed a distribution partnership with Jeju Air, the South Korean low-cost carrier (LCC), that will allow the airline to expand into new markets as part of its growth and expansion plan.

Jeju Air has renewed with Sabre to scale its global footprint, cater to traveller’s demands for reasonable flight fares and bring sustainable innovation to the Korean airline industry. The renewed partnership will also allow travel agents connected to the Sabre Travel Network to have access to air content from Jeju Air that will give travellers greater options and drive revenue for the airline.

“The appetite for travel is growing quickly in South Korea and over half of South Koreans are expected to make outbound trips by the end of this year. We are proud to be working with Jeju Air, and even more so that they continue to consider us as a valuable partner who can help them navigate and grow in these circumstances,” said Rakesh Narayanan, vice president, Air Commerce, Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific. “As we continue to grow the Sabre Travel Network marketplace, we are also building a more robust ecosystem between travel agents and businesses that will contribute to increased revenue for all parties, and ultimately benefit the traveller.”

“We are extremely happy to continue working with Sabre as we take the next steps towards expanding into new markets such as Russia. This is a testament to our confidence in Sabre as the best travel technology partner for travel businesses in the region,” said Kim Sanguk, chief information officer of Jeju Air.  “As the fastest growing airline in Korea with over 20 major routes in Asia, we are committed to providing the value that travellers have come to expect of us as we connect them to more destinations around the world.”
