Sabre Corporation recently unveiled top technology trends shaping future of travel in Oman.
The trends focused on online, mobile, personalization and big data which were among top trends highlighted as driving transformation of travel and the traveller’s experience.
“The Oman travel industry is set to rapidly evolve in coming years as consumer behaviours evolve and their appetite for technology increases,” said Daniel Naoumovitch, CEO Sabre Travel Network Middle East. “These tech-savvy consumers now expect travel to be easily accessible online, on their smartphones, and even wearable devices. For travel businesses to succeed in this changing environment, it is vital to integrate these technologies into their roadmap and growth plan. Companies that do this will differentiate their business and stay ahead of consumer needs,” he said.
Experts from Sabre shared a future view of how mobile, online, data and personalization could be integrated into current travel agency systems to meet traveller’ expectations and drive greater loyalty and business results.
Naoumovitch said investments the travel industry made in technology would have a healthy impact on Oman economy.
“The Oman travel industry contributes 10% of Oman GDP which is only second after Oil and Gas. Continued investments into travel will ensure sustained growth and profitability and will drive continued business benefits,” said Naoumovitch.
