Fuzhou Airlines selects Sabre as first foreign Global Distribution System

Sabre Corporation announced a new distribution service agreement with Fuzhou Airlines, making Sabre the carrier’s first global distribution system provider based outside of China.

Operating as a joint venture of Hainan Airlines out of Fuzhou Changle International Airport, Fuzhou Airlines is a fast-growing Chinese carrier that serves routes to major cities within eastern China. The airline hopes its rising growth trajectory will also play a leading role in raising the profile of Fuzhou, the capital city of Fujian province, by driving greater cooperation across the region.

“As Fuzhou Airlines continues to develop their business within the region, the Sabre platform will be essential in their expansion by providing access to our global travel marketplace of more than 425,000 travel agents,” said Rakesh Narayanan, vice president, air line of business, Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific.

“In Sabre, we have found a trusted and experienced partner whose technology will enable us to achieve our business objectives. Our continued growth initiatives will help to drive profitability, and in turn our business success will give the city of Fuzhou more visibility domestically and abroad,” said Ryan Nan Ren, director of marketing and sales, Fuzhou Airlines.

With a current fleet that consists of sixteen 737-800 airplanes, the airline also expects to add two more aircraft by the end of 2018. This agreement marks the sixth HNA Group carrier to join Sabre alongside Hainan Airlines, Beijing Capital Airlines, Lucky Air, China West Air and Tianjin Airlines.
