KEY QUOTE:

“Global travel trends continue to be reflective of COVID-19 case counts, cumulative and daily vaccination rates and regional travel restrictions. In the United States, part of our largest region, we are encouraged by the accelerating pace of daily vaccine doses administered, as well as the bullish demand comments and capacity plans made by U.S. airline executives. We have seen this confidence reflected in our North American bookings recovery. As expected, international markets vary significantly and collectively have been slower to improve than U.S. domestic travel. This has resulted in a rotation in our bookings mix. In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe we have a healthy sales pipeline and the ability to capture new opportunities. We continue to progress on our strategic initiatives, including merchandising and NDC. We are making essential technology investments and advancing critical aspects of our technology transformation and modernization. As the travel environment improves, we believe Sabre is well positioned.”

— Sean Menke, President and CEO, Sabre
