MORE than 22,000 travel agents in seven countries have shifted to the Sabre Red web-based booking portal since it was launched in August. Sabre Red is open-source system developed inhouse that replaces MySabre. “It’s the best thing that ever happened,” said Sabre Pacific CEO Gai Tyrell, adding that Sabre Red halved average international airfare booking  times to seven or eight minutes. Meanwhile, Ms Tyrell said Sabre Pacific had a 40% share of the Australian travel agency market and its immediate focus is on generating more corporate business.
