Sept 2 (Reuters) - Britain's competition watchdog on Monday launched an investigation into the U.S. travel technology provider Sabre Corp's proposed $360 million acquisition of smaller rival Farelogix Inc, saying the deal could raise prices for platforms used by airlines and travel agents to sell tickets.
The UK Competition and Markets Authority's investigation follows an initial review of the deal by the regulator last month and comes two weeks after the U.S. Justice Department sued to block the merger, escalating pressure on the companies to call off the combination.
Both Sabre and Farelogix provide information technology systems that allow hotel and airline bookings through travel agencies.
"We've found Sabre's proposed takeover of Farelogix could lead to higher prices for IT systems used by airlines & travel agents ...," the UK watchdog said http://bit.ly/2HEaW33, adding that it had referred the deal "for an in-depth investigation."
Sabre, which planned to close the merger by Aug. 21, last month extended the termination date of their acquisition agreement to April 30 to allow time for any challenges to be resolved.
Southlake, Texas-based Sabre reported 2018 revenue of $3.9 billion, while Miami-based Farelogix had $42 million in revenue last year.
Sabre and Farelogix were not immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Ankit Ajmera in Bengaluru; Editing by Steve Orlofsky)
