Airlines, agencies and hoteliers utilizing Sabre solutions will gain easier access to CellPoint Digital’s Payment Orchestration solutions.

CellPoint Digital, a payment solutions provider for the airline industry and a provider of Payment Orchestration, announced a new partnership with Sabre, a leading software and technology provider powering the global travel industry. Under the agreement, Sabre customers will now have access to CellPoint Digital’s suite of payment services, allowing them to gain more control and efficiency in their payment ecosystems globally.

CellPoint Digital’s widely adopted payment solutions are a natural complement to Sabre’s technology solutions. Both full-service and low-cost airlines and other travel companies can easily implement the leading payment orchestration platform and immediately benefit from access to integrated, best-in-class payment processing, routing and settlement – advantages that only CellPoint Digital’s solutions provide.

Direct connection and seamless integration

By integrating with Sabre’s technology solutions, CellPoint Digital’s payment services will be directly connected and pre-configured for all current and prospective airline merchants and other travel companies.

“Our new partnership with Sabre is a significant milestone in our mission to enhance connectivity and support the travel industry,” said Kristian Gjerding, CellPoint Digital’s Chief Executive Officer. “By joining forces with one of the most recognisable brands in travel, we can help more airlines and travel merchants regain control of their payment processes and full financial supply chain, as well as expand the reach of Payment Orchestration in the travel sector.”

Combining industry-leading strengths

Sabre and CellPoint Digital represent two innovative leaders in the airline and travel industries. CellPoint Digital is the world’s pioneer in Payment Orchestration, and its Velocity platform allows airlines and travel merchants to dynamically route transactions to preferred acquirers, quickly add new acquirers and streamline cross-border payments, all of which help to mitigate costs, diversify risk and ultimately increase conversions. CellPoint Digital also allows airlines and travel merchants to roll out more payment options to passengers and travellers, creating a more positive booking experience, minimizing abandoned transactions and growing revenue. Sabre provides its customers with the next-generation solutions they need to unlock more revenue streams, improve efficiencies and enhance the customer experience.

“We are thrilled to partner with CellPoint Digital and make it easier for our customers to access their Payment Orchestration solutions,” says Becky French, Vice President of Product Management, Sabre Travel Solutions. “This partnership marks a significant step forward in supporting our customers with improved capabilities in the ever-changing, fast-growing and dynamic payment space.”
