SITA and ATPCO join forces to provide data exchange API for NDC
Oct 12, 2017
The IATA NDC (New Distribution Cabability) is designed to enable the travel industry to transform the way air products are retailed to corporations, leisure and business travelers.
ATPCO and SITA, both certified IATA NDC Capable IT providers, have teamed up to develop a simple, cost-effective API for airlines and their partners to facilitate data exchange between airlines and travel agencies and travel management companies. NDC Exchange will enable quick adoption of NDC, lower the cost of compliance to the schema, while supporting complex interlining as airlines migrate to the new distribution format.
The service has already been successfully piloted by several major international airlines, including Air Canada and British Airways, via the Developer.aero platform.
NDC Exchange has been given the Level 3 NDC certification which is the highest level of certification offered by IATA and covers the full spectrum of order management and shopping.
