UK-based carrier British Airways has now signed new agreements with every Global Distribution System after signing with Sabre Travel Network this week.
The extension of the existing Sabre distribution deal follows similar agreements with Travelport in October and Amadeus in December 2009.
The Sabre deal ended on March 31 2010.
Sabre says the new three-year global partnership will provide its agencies and corporate customers with access to the airline’s full content and inventory via the Sabre GDS.
The previous opt-in agreements signed during the last round of negotiations remain unchanged, Sabre says.
Sabre and British Airways have also committed to distributing ancillary services available on the airline through the GDS.
"Corporations and agencies will be able to complete the sale using a new functionality based on industry technology standards known as Electronic Miscellaneous Documents (EMD).
"This new solution has been adopted by the travel industry to allow agents to sell, report on and accept payments for ancillary products.
"It ensures that travelers are clear about their options, and integrates into an agency’s existing back-office system. EMD is compatible with global financial settlement organizations Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) and Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP)."
