Sabre and BCD Travel have announced a partnership that will see the two businesses co-investing and collaborating on a number of technology-driven partnerships.

Under the agreement, BCD Travel, which already has an existing partnership with Sabre, expects to increase its booking levels with Sabre. The two businesses will also focus on creative solutions for managing growing complexities and evolving customer expectations, as well as transforming the impacts of technology and marketplace dynamics into opportunities.

“BCD Travel is a long-time, valued Sabre partner. Over the years, we’ve tackled industry challenges, innovated and grown together. Today, we take another important step in our partnership as we mutually commit to advancing the future of travel,” said Kurt Ekert, president of Sabre.

“This agreement demonstrates our continuing commitment to helping BCD achieve its objectives to differentiate its offerings, improve operational efficiency and grow. Whether that takes the form of providing solutions, or enabling solutions, we will continue to build and sustain the value-added relationship we’ve enjoyed with BCD for so many years.”

“This agreement is in line with our strategy to improve our agility, flexibility and responsiveness in a shifting environment,” said BCD Travel CEO and president John Snyder.

“By extending our long-standing partnership with Sabre, we’ll streamline our distribution technology footprint and simplify our operational, technical and future development infrastructure, allowing us to move more rapidly on our clients’ behalf as we innovate, anticipate and adjust to emerging market opportunities.”
