As time moves forward and advances in technology come with it, the way consumers shop for travel continually evolves. Developers are naturally impacted by this evolution and must address the constantly changing desires of their customer base when building new applications. There is a growing trend amongst travelers to shop for travel in a way that coincides with their needs, such as shopping for specific destinations, dates and price ranges. As a result, many consumers wish to set criteria and then be notified when searches are available that satisfy their requirements.
We have a new solution that encourages and enables this trend in the form of Sabre’s new FareNabber API, available June 30, 2017.
What does it do?
This air shopping API is a subscription service for priced flight options. Available in REST, it allows the customer to set specific subscription search parameters, such as:
• Origin, destination (Airport or City)
• Specific departure and return date
• Date range
• Schedule preferences (such as nonstop or multiple stops)
• Passenger type
• Number of passengers
• Minimum/maximum price
Once these parameters meet the desired search criteria, results are pushed to the customer to take action. Subscriptions have an active status, which ranges from 1 to 90 days. If options are not found within the active subscription, the subscription expires.
Why is this important?
Incorporating this tech into new applications both addresses growing travel technology trends and opens the doors for new types of solutions and revenue opportunities to be built in the future. Think about it: today’s traveler does not have time to sit around and monitor flight options – nor would they want to even if they had the time to do so. In a world where push notifications have become the norm, it seems only logical that the same courtesy is to be provided to everyone in the travel spectrum: from the millennial traveler in search of a new experience to even the seasoned veteran looking for a quick getaway.
What’s next for FareNabber?
We’ll have more info coming soon regarding FareNabber: documentation, sample request/response, use cases and beyond. For now, keep it on your radar and stay tuned to Sabre Dev Studio for the release on June 30. Got questions?
