TWAI, a leading software and Travel technology company powering the global travel industry, has successfully integrated IATA New Distribution Capability (NDC) content from Air Canada (TSE: AC) to its Accessone NDC. After a testing phase with agency customers in USA, Singapore, and Canada, the offers of Qatar’s flag carrier is now available to travel agencies across the globe.
Travel agencies will be able to shop, book, and manage NDC offers. Access to Air Canada content will be available through “Travel Agent Mall” very soon, TWAI’s Company B2B portal for Agents and Agency, and its NDC-enabled Offer and Order Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) will be available at “Accessone NDC API“.
“We’ve been actively engaged in Sabre’s Beyond NDC program for several years and we’re proud to be the first carrier-based in EMEA to make our products and offers available to the global travel agency community through Sabre’s marketplace,” said Matt Raos, Senior Vice President Global Sales at Qatar Airways. “With NDC as a part of our strategy to evolve our offering and enhance ancillary sales, we believe effective distribution in the indirect channel will become more important in the future.”
With Air Canada’s extensive network of destinations, access to the carrier’s unique NDC content is expected to be relevant to travel buyers across the globe in the post-COVID-19 recovery period and beyond.
NDC is one aspect of TWAI strategic goal to create a new marketplace for personalized travel, with some key developments expected for 2022.
