GDS’ spell out initiatives for NDC

Amadeus has announced the creation of a dedicated NDC-X programme to drive the industrialisation of IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC).

Amadeus says its NDC-X programme will bring together experts from across the company to focus on practical use cases of NDC, an XML-based data transmission standard set to change airline distribution and merchandising.

The initiative is a continuation of the company’s efforts to digitalise airline distribution and create new commercial possibilities to build on the new technology standard.

Amadeus’ move came just a day after Travelport unveiled product plans to enable airlines and agents in the NDC era.

These products will allow travel agencies to connect through Travelport’s platform in a single workflow combining traditional content and new NDC content.
