Sabre Travel Solutions, Central and Western Africa, has renewed its agreement with Touchdown Travel for another five years. Sabre, at a session with the management team of Touchdown Travels, said it has consistently rolled out new products to support operators to align with evolving trends in the travel business.

Some of the new products include: Content Services for Lodging, Sabre Central, Automation Hub, Agency Retailer, New Airline Storefront and Sabre Virtual Payments.

Senior Vice President, Allen Awosikunde, said those products would further improve the services of travel agents to their clients and further modernise the industry.

Awosikunde said: “We divided some of the products into four parts-partial use, not using at all, new products and intending new products. The fact is that people think making reservations and bookings are all they do, but it goes beyond that.

“When you issue a Passenger Name Record (PNR) to a traveller, the journey is not complete until the passenger travels and returns. Sabre stands out in post-booking automation. What we are trying to sell to them today is to tell them that what everyone can do is not an edge; what is an edge is what only you can do, which others can’t do.”

Agency Manager of Touchdown Travels, Tajudeen Balogun, congratulated Sabre for the contract renewal, describing Sabre as the best among the Global Distribution Systems (DGS) in the world. He said the agency renewed its contract with Sabre as a result of values the company has added to its services and growth over the years.
