Sabre and Emirates announced a new distribution agreement, ending an impasse that had resulted in Emirates tickets and ancillary products not being available in Sabre's GDS since 1 July. The agreement is in effect.

Along with distributing content on Sabre through legacy GDS Edifact technology, Emirates will also begin distributing NDC-enabled offers through Sabre.

Sabre said Emirates content has been reintroduced without surcharges. Emirates enacted a surcharge of US$14 to US$25 for GDS bookings on 1 July, but also announced an agreement that day under which Travelport-connected agencies would be exempt from the fee.

Emirates had implemented the GDS surcharge in conjunction with its launch of an NDC-powered direct-connect portal for travel agencies.
