Posted 2 April 2012 · Add Comment

Global distribution systems (GDS) supplier Sabre Travel Network Middle East (STNME), has announced positive results for 2011.

Part of the global technology firm which serves travel suppliers and agencies, the Middle East arm said it had experienced strong growth across all MENA markets in 2011.

Sabre signed partnership agreements with all major Middle Eastern travel agencies including AlShamel International, Dnata, Kanoo Travel and Fursan Travel and Tourism.

In May, Sabre opened a new office in Kuwait, highlighting the importance of the market and its commitment to serving the Kuwaiti travel industry. Sabre also opened a second office in Egypt, based in Alexandria, to meet the continued growth in travel demand through the Arab Spring.

Daniel Naoumovitch, CEO, STNME said that against all odds, it’s been another exceptional year for Sabre. “We enjoyed another healthy year of growth, renewing agreements with some of the biggest names in the travel industry including Kanoo, Alshamel, Fursan and Dnata, and expanding our presence in new countries around the region.   Against a background of uncertainty, we have continued to invest significantly in new products to fuel our customers’ growth and success. ” said Naoumovitch.

As a sign of its ongoing commitment to the region, Sabre doubled its regional headquarters in Bahrain to accommodate its growing workforce. The only GDS with a regional headquarters in the region, Sabre is often considered the technology provider next door, with the Bahrain office supporting its 21 offices in 11 countries in the GCC, Africa and the Levant to accommodate its growing workforce.

Last year also saw the launch of Sabre Red and its award-winning platform, Sabre Red Workspace, which was specifically launched to help agents in the Middle East shop, book and manage travel in low bandwidth areas. Sabre ended the year by picking up an award at the annual World Traveler Awards for Egypt.
