Emirates unveils new NDC-powered gateway for travel agents

Emirates has launched a suite of connectivity options for its trade partners around the world to easily and directly access the airline’s content and other services.

Developed using the International Air Transport Association’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) standards, the Emirates Gateway is available via the recently launched Emirates Partners Portal.

Offering improved access to Emirates’ products and services with an intuitive and easy to ease interface, the Emirates Gateway offers the airline’s trade partners the ability to enhance travellers’ journeys with customised products and services.

Trade partners can connect to the Emirates Gateway via three flexible access solutions.

The Emirates Booking Portal is a user-friendly web booking portal available in 12 languages, connected directly to the UAE flag carrier’s reservation systems that simplifies the booking, ticketing and post-ticketing servicing of orders.

Emirates Gateway Direct provides access to Emirates content through NDC application programming interfaces, allowing trade partners to build applications that meet their needs with expert support from the airline’s IT teams.

Emirates Gateway Sync is a facilitated link into the Emirates reservation system provided by the airline’s IATA-registered and certified technology partners.

Travel trade agents can find more information on the Emirates Gateway via the Emirates Partners Portal, or by contacting the Emirates sales representative in their market.

Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer at Emirates, said: “The Emirates Gateway suite of connection options has been built on new technology and is designed to address the limitations of current legacy distribution systems.

“Our aim was to create a platform that empowers us to rapidly develop and deploy new products and services, thereby giving us and our trade partners the ability to offer even more value-added and differentiated services.

“It also prepares the way for Emirates to offer custom content and dynamic pricing that better responds to our changing marketplace.”
