Sabre says the acquisition and integration of Farelogix’s GDS- and PSS-agnostic technology will accelerate its innovation efforts in the airline IT space, as it partners with airlines and travel agencies through its Beyond NDC programme.

Based in Miami, Farelogix provides a suite of SaaS solutions that enables carriers to dynamically create, control, optimise and deliver personalised and differentiated offers across sales channels.

Jim Davidson, CEO of Farelogix, commented: “For the past few years, Farelogix and Sabre have worked together with shared customers to implement our complementary technologies to solve some of the industry’s toughest challenges. Today’s announcement is a natural evolution of the successful, ongoing collaboration between our two companies.”

The acquisition is subject to regulatory approvals and is expected to close in late 2018 or early 2019.
