Omega World Travel and Sabre’s TripCase Team Up to Offer
Advanced Communications and Messaging to Business Travelers


FAIRFAX, VA and SOUTHLAKE, TX – February 16, 2010- Omega World Travel, a leading travel management company (TMC) serving multi-national corporations and government agencies, today announced an agreement to become the first TMC to globally integrate, promote and distribute Sabre Travel Studios' TripCase(SM) smart mobile application.

The innovative solution includes full integration of Omega Travel customers' travel plans into the TripCase platform, allowing Omega to communicate directly with travelers post-booking and in-transit. Omega's clients will gain from real-time messaging that keeps business travelers informed, empowered and connected wherever they travel.

TripCase is a free mobile application that provides real-time trip information to travelers from the moment of the booking until their return. TripCase supports Blackberry, iPhone, iTouch and Windows Mobile devices, with Android connectivity anticipated later this quarter.

TripCase provides a host of services to business and leisure travelers, including:
  • automatic import of itinerary details
  • flight updates/alerts/notifications
  • trip-specific messages
  • flight departure and arrival status
  • baggage claim location
  • gate changes
  • travel itinerary sharing
  • car rental shuttle information
Convenient push messages alert travelers to flight status changes. The application also allows the traveler to access weather, hotel and rental car information and more.

"The deployment of TripCase provides us the opportunity to further enhance the quality services we provide to our customers in the areas of communication, risk management and corporate responsibility," says Gloria Bohan, Omega's Chief Executive Officer. "TripCase's advanced technologies keep travelers connected and informed during every aspect of their trip."

"TripCase has immense potential in the corporate travel arena," said John Samuel, Senior Vice President of Sabre Travel Studios, the group that conceived and launched TripCase. "Beyond merely keeping travelers informed, corporations working with progressive TMCs can utilize this platform to enhance collaboration, drive usage of preferred suppliers, and more. We're excited to build off our initial success with the general public and enter this arena with a strong launch partner in Omega World Travel."
