We’ll manage IATA’s NDC so you don’t have to.
In today’s exciting world of evolving distribution strategies, we don’t believe the conversation should be about any single source of content, whether that’s NDC (New Distribution Capability), API (Application program interface), classic ATPCo connectivity – or whatever new technology comes next. Instead, as the first NDC Level 3 Certified aggregator and first GDS operator to manage the live booking of flights using these new standards, we believe that all of us in the industry should be around the tech table, talking about ways to ensure that we continue to make the experience of managing and buying travel continually better for everyone.
As the world around us changes and technology innovations make processes simpler, the travel industry is also changing to keep pace with travelers’ expectations.
As active participants in the travel eco-system we must continue to work together to ensure the technology solutions that we build and deploy today resolve our existing challenges and provide a better experience for decades to come.
We are transforming systems and processes to give travelers choice and simplicity over what they’re booking. Travelport’s Vice President, Technology and Head of Architecture Stu Waldron gives his view on the new way of thinking and building systems for the future. As the first GDS operator to manage the commercial booking of flights using the IATA NDC technical standard, we are also excited to share our learnings and insights from this early phase of deployment of our NDC solution, in addition to our 2019 roadmap.
