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 current Lufthansa Group airlines’ Direct NDC API (Application Programming Interface), our partners have been able to access exclusive offers – the NDC Smart Offer – for quite some time now. Yet the range of services enabled by NDC is gradually being expanded. The Lufthansa Group airlines are always working on appropriate solutions – at all levels and tailored to the requirements of different businesses.
The Lufthansa Group airlines are members of IATA’s NDC Leaderboard – a group of 22 airlines worldwide that have already generated more than 20% of bookings through NDC by the end of 2020.
