Qantas will be one of the first airlines to join Amadeus’ NDC-X program!
Since the launch of Amadeus’ NDC-X program in February this year, Amadeus has made great strides with airlines and travel sellers in order to drive progress with NDC (new distribution capabilities).
The travel tech company will connect with the Qantas Distribution Platform (QDP) and deliver NDC content to travel agents, allowing them to book NDC content alongside other travel content.
This will enable agents to create greater personalisation for travellers!
“Our program will enable airlines to sell their NDC offers across travel sellers around the world, through our NDC-enabled travel platform,” Gianni Pisanello, VP, NDC-X program, Amadeus said.
“We’re excited to have Qantas onboard as part of our leading industry program. The Amadeus Travel Platform is designed with both airline and travel sellers needs in mind, and we are looking forward to making NDC content available within it.”
“We’re making great progress, and will have online travel bookings in production later this year, meaning that the full booking flow of ‘shop, order and pay’ will take place using the NDC standard.”
This announcement follows Amadeus and Qantas’ renewal of the IT and distribution partnership.
