New MoU Signed Between Vietnam Airlines and Sabre

March 2019

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed by Vietnam Airlines and Sabre, a leading provider of systems for air bookings, as part of efforts to take forward the implementation of the former’s Digital Transformation Programme. This new agreement follows a USD 400 million renewed deal between Vietnam Airlines and Sabre in 2018.

Under the MOU, Vietnam Airlines would potentially pay USD 300 million for innovative technology from Sabre AirVision and AirCenter portfolio. The state-owned airline expects that its existing passenger service system (PSS) will be complemented by SabreSonic which helps to deliver cost savings and improve operational efficiency.

Vietnam Airlines is considering the application of a new, long-term domestic content distribution agreement through the Sabre Global Distribution System (GDS). One of the airline’s subsidiary will also adopt the SabreSonic PSS. A deal is expected to be finalized within a few months to implement a single integrated passenger technology platform across both airlines.
