Under the renewed agreement, Sabre will continue to distribute Virgin Australia flights and services through the Sabre GDS marketplace, ensuring that hundreds of thousands of Sabre-connected agencies will continue to have access to Virgin Australia’s great value products and services.
“Although international borders remain largely closed at the moment, there is a lot of pent-up demand and positivity in the domestic market,” said David Orszaczky, general manager digital and distribution, Virgin Australia. “We’re committed to creating an ecosystem that delivers great-value for customers and ensuring our agency partners can help deliver the many travel experiences we offer in their preferred channel.”
The renewal comes at an exciting time for Virgin Australia and the broader aviation industry, which is beginning to recover from the impacts of COVID-19. Taking flight under new ownership, Virgin Australia is working to evolve and modernise its distribution strategy to further deliver experiences its guests love amidst a fast-changing travel marketplace.
