China Eastern Airlines
China Eastern Airlines, a leading commercial airline in China,
together with its subsidiary Shanghai Airlines, have reached a new full content

Under this agreement, the airlines’ fares and inventory will

“China Eastern, Shanghai Airlines and Sabre have had a very
strong relationship over the years. This new agreement will not only meet our
distribution needs, but will also bring about immediate benefits to us as part
of our distribution strategy in our global expansion, especially in the North America region. We recognize the value of Sabre GDS
and we look forward to working closely with the Sabre team to implement this
agreement,” said James Pu, General Manager System Development/Revenue Management
Department of China Eastern Airlines.
“Sabre continues to be committed to helping the China
Eastern and Shanghai Airlines maximize their reach and revenue potential,” said
Hans Belle, vice president of Sabre Travel Network – Asia-Pacific.
“Having the airlines give us their full content will benefit
the airlines and our Sabre-connected agents. This will allow both parties to
fully realize the benefits of Sabre’s technology and customer reach. We applaud
this partnership and look forward to seeing the growth,” added Belle.
This full content agreement continues a broad relationship
between China Eastern Airlines, Shanghai Airlines and Sabre Holdings. In
addition to participation in the Sabre GDS, China Eastern Airlines and Shanghai
