NEW DISTRIBUTION CAPABILITY – SMART SOLUTIONS FOR THE FUTURE
Direct, dynamic and flexible – NDC is the pioneering data transmission standard for individual booking solutions
The future of the travel market will be characterised by individuality. New demands from end customers for ancillary services, relevant offers and transparency will present the industry with new challenges. NDC is already providing the solution to these challenges – with a direct, dynamic, flexible and modern data standard. With NDC, the Lufthansa Group airlines are playing a leading role in the ongoing digitalisation and modernisation of distribution channels.
Via the Lufthansa Group airlines’ Direct NDC API (Application Programming Interface), our partners are able to access exclusive offers – the NDC Offers – for quite some time now. The range of services enabled by NDC is gradually being expanded. The Lufthansa Group airlines are always working on appropriate solutions - as the next step we are firmly committed to the new IATA Modern Airline Retailing program and believe that this consortium will be instrumental in achieving its goals, together as an industry, with the aim to advance customer centricity and value creation in the airline industry.
The Lufthansa Group airlines as founding members of the IATA airline retailing consortium are firmly committed to move together with the industry towards the end vision – just “one order”
A world of 100% Offers and Orders, with all the information, like any modern retailer will be the new backbone for an industry without PNRs, e-tickets and EMDs.
