Qantas has renewed its reservation system agreements with Sabre, Amadeus and Travel Port, agreeing to continue publishing fares, schedules and inventory on the three networks.
The agreements were due to expire this year. A Qantas spokesman declined to disclose the terms of the new contracts, citing confidentiality.
The agreements allow travel agencies and suppliers using Sabre, Amadeus and Travel Port’s Galileo, Worldspan and Apollo global distribution systems (GDS) to continue reserving seats and issuing tickets for Qantas flights.
A Sabre spokesman told iTnews this week that it served 40 percent of travel agencies worldwide and had worked with Qantas for more than 20 years.
Amadeus last year reported that it had a GDS market share of nearly 38 percent in 2011. It also supplied Qantas’ passenger management, load control and e-commerce systems.
