“Our expanded partnership with Sabre is directly in line with our business strategy to ensure that travellers and agents interact with the Hong Kong Airlines brand,” said Wayne Wang, Assistant Director for Commercial, Hong Kong Airlines. “With this new solution, our brand will remain visible throughout the entire booking process, which is particularly important as we continue to increase our regional and global flight routes, including long-haul service from Hong Kong to destinations like Vancouver, Los Angeles and San Francisco.”
The Sabre Branded Fares solution helps airlines merchandise their exclusive products to travellers in new ways. With the support of Sabre technology, Hong Kong Airlines can ensure that its brand lives beyond its own channels, providing travel buyers and sellers with enhanced fare functionality at the most optimal price.
