Abacus and SCAT Air Sign Full Content Distribution Agreement

Abacus International, Asia’s leading revenue partner for airlines, announced that the company has signed a new agreement with SCAT Air, a leading carrier in Kazakhstan. Through the agreement, SCAT Air provides Abacus travel agents access to the airline’s entire published inventory of flights and fares.

The three-year deal, which takes effect in the 4th quarter of 2011, provides Abacus-connected agents full access to the most up-to-date routes and fares from SCAT Air, including the airline’s Web fares, without being subjected to any surcharge fees.

“As one of the largest, growing carriers in Kazakhstan, we seek a partner who has a sound presence and extensive network of travel agents throughout Central Asia as well as our destination markets,” said Mr Vladimir Denissov, President, SCAT Air. “With a great deal of expertise and reach in this region, Abacus is an important distribution partner and this deal will further strengthen our position with its agents.”

SCAT Air currently flies to all major cities within Kazakhstan and neighbouring international countries like Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Mongolia and Russia.

“We are delighted to have signed an agreement that will guarantee full content to all Abacus users,” said Mr Danny Kondic, VP Channel Management, Abacus International. “We have worked hard with SCAT Air to come to a cost-effective agreement that will further entrench our business in Central Asia and Kazakhstan, a key market for our expansion.”

Abacus has recently signed a number of agreements in Central Asia with select carriers to provide full content for their travel agents.

“This deal affirms our leadership in Central Asia and the value of our distribution channel. I look forward to Abacus continuing to secure full content programmes across the region,” added Mr Kondic.
