Abacus was founded in 1989. The Abacus core GDS functions provide complete travel-related information about schedules, availability, fares and related services, which can be quickly retrieved through a series of keystrokes. Seat reservations are made, airline tickets are issued and an entire spectrum of passenger information is recorded in just a few minutes. Beyond this, services from many different types of travel suppliers such as hotels, car-rentals, railways, can also be provided and booked.
Abacus has now merged with Sabre to increase its scope of operations.
