EgyptAir has struck a multi-year deal to distribute fares via Sabre.
The agreement was heralded as “putting Egyptian tourism back on the map for the world”.
The carrier’s fares will be accessible by more than 350,000 travel agents who use the GDS.
EgyptAir chairman and chief executive Captain Hossam Kamal said: “Egypt is the ultimate destination for adventure, ancient architecture and hospitality.
“Our relationship with Sabre will help the airline and the country with its ongoing expansion strategy. The exposure to agents through Sabre’s global network means Egypt’s wonders are accessible to the world.”
Sabre Travel Network Middle East chief executive Daniel Naoumovitch said: “This new deal strengthens Sabre’s presence in Egypt and will power the airline’s growth plans.
“With our strategic offices in Cairo and Alexandria, we are confident this partnership will grow and prosper further.”
Sabre operates in Egypt from Cairo and Alexandria and has 21 offices in 11 countries across the Middle East and North Africa.
EgyptAir joins a list of more than 400 airlines that have chosen the GDS to sell to travel agencies. Sabre recently announced agreements with VIM Avia and Saudi Arabian Airlines.
