Sabre launches Sabre Red Launchpad booking solution


Sabre Corporation has unveiled its latest booking solution, Sabre Red Launchpad, tailored for new or independent travel consultants. Developed in collaboration with Internova Travel Group, one of the world’s largest travel services companies, Sabre Red Launchpad is an extension of Sabre Red 360.

This innovative solution streamlines the onboarding process for new consultants, offering a user-friendly interface for accessing Sabre’s comprehensive travel marketplace. Internova will introduce a co-branded version, Internova SNAP, Powered by Sabre, to its vast network of travel advisors in the U.S., with a global rollout of Sabre Red Launchpad planned in the coming months.

Kathy Morgan, Vice President of Product Management, Distribution Experience at Sabre Travel Solutions, highlighted, “Sabre Red Launchpad expands the Sabre Red toolkit, offering agencies greater choice and flexibility in workforce management. We’re proud to collaborate with visionary partners like Internova Travel Group to introduce technologies that enhance the advisor and traveler experience.”

Sabre Red Launchpad features a user-friendly graphical interface akin to consumer travel apps, enabling quick booking of air, hotel, and car itineraries. It supports NDC offers, low-cost carrier XML content, and traditional ATPCO/EDIFACT options.

Peter Vlitas, Executive Vice President, Partner Relations at Internova Travel Group, emphasized the importance of modern tools in attracting talent to the industry and empowering independent agents. He expressed excitement about introducing a new era in travel shopping and booking in collaboration with Sabre.

Sabre Red Launchpad complements Sabre’s existing booking solution, Sabre Red 360, allowing seamless hand-off of bookings when complex servicing needs arise. Throughout 2024, Sabre will invite more agencies to join Internova in adopting Sabre Red Launchpad as part of an early adopter program.
