Sabre Travel Network Middle East has opened a new office in the region in Jeddah, in the Western Province of Saudi Arabia, further enhancing its investment and expansion plans in the Middle East.
The opening ceremony, held at the Jeddah Hilton, was attended by guest of honour Mr. Mohammed Ali Andijani, Saudi Arabian Airlines’ senior manager of CRS participation programmes - along with prominent travel agents of the region, including Kanoo Travel and Al Tayyar.
“Following our new offices in Riyadh and Dammam, this latest opening demonstrates our continuous growth in one of the most important markets in the GCC and our ability to use our global capabilities in order to meet local needs and provide a more compelling and competitive proposition to our customers,” said Daniel Naoumovitch, Sabre Travel Network Middle East’s chief executive officer.
The office is complemented by state-of-the-art training and technical support facilities.
Sabre Connected agencies in the region already benefit from a range of sophisticated Sabre tools and services, including the ‘MySabre’ online booking tool and e-ticketing capabilities.
“We are committed to continue to bring innovative solutions and enhanced technology to the travel community in Saudi Arabia. Our aim is to help our customers drive operational efficiency, enhance customer service, reduce costs and increase revenues. Having a local presence in such a key market enables us to do so more efficiently,” continued Mr. Naoumovitch.
