Colombian carrier Avianca has signed a three-year deal with Saber Corp. to distribute New Distribution Capability and other content to Saber-connected agencies, Saber announced this week.
“Embracing NDC distribution and creating more differentiated content that reflects the needs and wants of today’s traveler is more important than ever,” Avianca VP of sales and distribution Catalina Nannig said in a statement. “At Avianca we are convinced that implementing NDC at scale is key to deliver better content and solutions to travelers.”
Avianca, Colombia’s flag carrier, earlier this year announced it would form a holding company with Brazilian low-cost carrier Gol that would control both carriers. The carriers expect that transaction to close later this year.
