Sabre has confirmed that flight and fare content from the troubled airline, Air India, is no longer available through its GDS system.

The two companies have been partners for over 20 years.

Sabre Vice President – Global Communications Kristin Hays said: “We are very disappointed that Air India decided to withdraw from Sabre. We believe that access to Sabre’s global network of travel agencies provides great value to Air India. We have worked with Air India for the better part of a year to reach a new agreement, in anticipation of the existing contract expiring and after receiving a termination notice from the carrier. Unfortunately, after extensive negotiations, we have been unable to come to a new agreement. Our teams will continue to work with Air India to finalize an agreement that meets the needs of Sabre, Air India and travel buyers.” The Indian airline has been looking for a new investor since 2018 and speculation is rife over whether the airline will be able to remain in business.

 “Sabre remains committed to GDS agreements that meet our airline customers’ unique needs while also balancing the needs of the travel buyers who rely on Sabre for robust travel content,” added Hays.
