Accessed via SITA's Developer.aero API platform, NDC Exchange facilitates real-time NDC connectivity between airlines and sellers (GDSs, travel agents, aggregators, OTAs, and TMCs) supporting shopping, booking, and servicing workflows in addition to cross-selling of ancillary services between airlines, and airlines and sellers.
