Sabre announces new agreement with CVFR Travel Group to grow its footprint in Fiji and the South Pacific islands

CVFR Travel Group, one of Australia’s largest travel groups, will be marketing and servicing Sabre’s advanced travel technology solutions to provide travel agents with best-in-class solutions needed for growth.

SINGAPORE, Sydney, AUSTRALIA, and Nadi, FIJI –  Sabre Corporation announced a new strategic alliance with Sydney-headquartered Airline Rep Services, part of CVFR Travel Group. Under the agreement, Airline Rep Services will promote Sabre’s best-in-class solutions to travel agents in Fiji and the wider South Pacific islands.
