Dadabhai Travel, a global travel management company (TMC), has extended its partnership with Sabre Corporation that has been ongoing for the last decade.
The TMC will continue to utilise Sabre’s platform to deliver its travel services to customers within the GCC, an area that Dadabhai Travel today maintains 17 bases across different countries. Additionally, the company aims to use the partnership to expand its global footprint with its entry into the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
Commenting on the partnership, Roshan Mendis, Sabre Travel Network SVP, EMEA and APAC, shared: “By providing customers access to competitive travel products and services, it has successfully transformed from a Bahrain-based travel agency into a strong regional player. The company now has a clear roadmap and is rapidly expanding into a number of exciting areas of the Middle East.
He added: “With Sabre’s substantial network in the region, we are best-placed to help the company scale and expand through the latest technology and consultancy. It’s an exciting collaboration and we look forward to a continuing partnership with Dadabhai to provide a seamless travel experience to customers across the continent.”
Sabre’s travel marketplace is currently utilised by more than 425,000 travel agents to shop, book and manage travel. The marketplace reportedly processes over $120bn in estimated travel spend each year.
Aziz Gilitwala, managing director Dadabhai Travel, said: “Sabre’s solutions and leadership in areas such as mobile, personalization and data have helped us achieve our ambitious expansion plans and successfully fulfil increasing traveller expectations over the past decade.
“As we continue our expansion into GCC and APAC countries, we will rely on Sabre’s technology and global expertise to help us perform effectively and efficiently. Sabre is an innovative, trusted and vital supplier to us and we have become more competitive and relevant in the market with its support.”
