Sabre Corporation, Amadeus and Travelport have terminated their distribution agreement with Russia’s Aeroflot last week.
Sabre explained in a statement that the move represented its stand against Russia’s attack on Ukraine, and was in compliance with sanctions imposed against Russia.
Aeroflot is the largest government-majority owned carrier in Russia.
Sabre’s chief executive officer Sean Menke said: “Our primary focus has been the safety of our team members in the impacted region, as well as doing our part to support the much-needed relief efforts.”
The company has donated US$1 million to the Polish Red Cross, which is providing humanitarian work in the conflict zone.
Sabre will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and evaluate on further actions where appropriate.
News reports have stated that Aeroflot operations have been disrupted, with it being unable to fly across a number of airspaces and land in many countries around the world. The Russian government has in turn banned carriers from landing in Russian destinations. Aeroflot will continue to carry passengers by working directly with sales agents through its own system.
