By Patrick Mulindi

Thirty-one USIU-Africa Hotel and Restaurant Management program students have just completed a 3-day intensive training on airline and hotel reservations using the SABRE Global Distribution System software which began on Monday, August 28 to Wednesday, August 30, 2023. The training was a collaboration between the Kenya Association of Travel Agents (KATA), Sabron Tech. Ltd and the USIU-Africa Hospitality and Tourism Department. It was conducted by Ms. Catherine Okolla and Nelius Wanjuku, both trainers from Sabron Tech Ltd, Nairobi.

SABRE is an IT platform used globally to connect hospitality and travel suppliers, such as hotels, airlines, car rental companies, cruise liners, etc. with buyers from around the globe. The objective of the training was for the students to acquire hands-on computerized reservations skills. The students were taken through modules which included airline and hotel availability, selecting and pricing air segments and hotel rooms, creating passenger name records, among others. All participants of the training program received certificates in a ceremony that was conducted in the Frieda Brown Center on August 30, 2023.
