Abacus signing a first for Sichuan Airlines (459 words)
Airlines, a mainland Chinese carrier based in Chengdu, is the 9th mainland China carrier/group to sign on to Abacus’ reservation inventory.
Sichuan Airlines’ Direct Connect Availability (DCA) participation with Abacus is its first with a foreign Global Distribution Service (GDS) and the move is expected to allow the airline to attract a larger share of the domestic and international travel market.
