The Rise of the Emerging Market Traveler Sponsored This content is created collaboratively with one of our sponsors.
Despite stalled growth in China, Brazil and Russia, a wave of newly middle-class travelers from the BRICs and beyond will start visiting international destinations in the coming decades — dwarfing the numbers we’ve seen thus far.
Even with Sabre and American Air’s recent legal battles, their shared history runs deep. And they probably would prefer not to share the fate of United and Continental’s boondoggle of a reservation merger.
American Airlines Group Inc. said Monday that it would use travel-technology company Sabre to develop a single reservations system under American’s merger with US Airways.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
American said that the development of a single reservation system would be a milestone in the process of combining the two airlines, which merged last month but will operate separately — each with its own reservations system — for up to two years.
Shares of Fort Worth-based American fell 12 cents to $30.28 in afternoon trading. Sabre, based in Southlake, Texas, is privately held.
