Full-year direct billable airline bookings processed by Sabre last year fell to 314 million, down nearly 4 percent from 2012. Including non-air travel transactions, total direct billable GDS bookings last year declined by 3 percent to 368 million.

Full-year direct billable airline bookings processed by Sabre last year fell to 314 million, down nearly 4 percent from 2012. Including non-air travel transactions, total direct billable GDS bookings last year declined by 3 percent to 368 million.
