The Acquisition Of Lufthansa Airlines And Air Canada By Sabre Corporation
Sabre Corporation is an air travel technology business based in Southlake, Texas. It’s the largest worldwide distribution provider of air reservations in North America. American Airlines started the company in 1960, which was later spun off into Sabre, Inc. in 2021.
A few years ago, the corporation held a contest to name the first “Master Saleifier” and in the end, they chose Sabre CEO Richard Combs. The company has had some good financial performances over the years, but growth has been slow due to the global travel industry taking a hit over the past few years. However, the corporation did see growth with the acquisition of Delta Airlines in 2021, which was supposed to strengthen their North American division. This strategic realignment should help increase revenues as well as profits.
Sabre Corporation’s core business is property management, which is a division that allows it to provide a full range of services to help its customers get the best property management experience every time they travel. The corporation also manages hotels, resorts, and vacation homes, which are also its core business. It’s also responsible for maintaining the planes that carry passengers to these destinations and many of these properties are spread around the world. With the merger of Delta and American Airlines into the already successful American Airlines, it was only a matter of time before Sabre would get into the airline market as well.
Sabre is currently looking into new ways to strengthen its customer service. The airline has been greatly disappointed by the poor experience travelers have had with its reservation systems. To be fair, all airlines have had their moments when their computer systems have failed them. This has been an unfortunate issue that was bound to happen, but the Sabre Corporation seems determined to find a way to improve this area of its business. One way that they plan on improving this area of their business is through the acquisition of another global distribution company, like Sabre International Distribution.
An important final step toward completing this acquisition is to complete the purchase of stakes in two other airline companies. These include stakes in Lufthansa and Air Canada. These two carriers are among the most important carrier-focused businesses in the world, so completing the acquisitions of these two businesses will be a crucial step toward completing this large move. Sabre will be able to provide Air Canada and Lufthansa employees access to the software that will allow them to more effectively manage their passenger database.
This acquisition will give Sabre another chance to strengthen its ability to provide customer service and operational support to clients and to partner with other airline companies. This will also give Sabre another opportunity to expand into other types of global distribution services. They are in the process of evaluating investment opportunities at this very moment. Sabre also has international ambitions, such as expanding into Canada and Latin America in the future. This acquisition is another step forward for Sabre Corporation as it seeks to become a major player in the international distribution market for air travel.
