Partnership with Sabre Corporation

In May, SkyUp began cooperation with Sabre, one of the largest technology and software providers for the global travel industry. The company will distribute SkyUp fares on a global platform that provides an innovative marketplace for hundreds of thousands of travel agencies and corporations around the world. Thanks to this partnership, we improve the travel community's access to the airline's resources and become easily accessible in the global market.

We are actively expanding our route network, which means that we are looking for talented specialists who are ready to join our team of aircraft commanders, co-pilots, and flight attendants.
