Sabre Corporation has announced a partnership with Eastar Jet to begin distributing flights through its Travel Marketplace.

The low-cost carrier operates flights to various countries within the Asia Pacific region, including Korea, Japan, China and south-east Asia. Sabre says creating connectivity between the airline and its network will make the flights visible to more than 425,000 travel agents globally.

Rakesh Narayanan, VP of air commerce at Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific, said: “Low-cost carriers are revolutionising the way people travel, for both short and long-haul flights. This trend is most prevalent in northeast Asia, where LCCs currently account for approximately half of the market, and are expected to overtake full-service airlines for the first time in the near future.

“In Korea, the first half of 2017 saw international flight passengers who took LCCs increase by 49.1 per cent, whereas flag carriers saw a 3.2 per cent decrease within the same timeframe. By offering rich airline content for our customers and agencies, we are confident of helping Eastar Jet grow into a global airline of choice.”
