New Distribution Capability (NDC)

New Distribution Capability (NDC) is just one, yet critical, enabler in the larger vision of enhanced travel retailing. And Amadeus is driving it forward.

  • New Distribution Capability (NDC) is just one, yet critical, enabler in the larger vision of enhanced travel retailing. It’s one of the biggest changes the industry has seen in a long time. And Amadeus is driving it forward.
  • Amadeus has been committed to new distribution capabilities, working alongside IATA to deliver an enhanced new XML-based data transmission standard for market adoption.
  • Amadeus Selling Platform Connect (SECO) a cloud-based booking platform, now allows travel sellers to shop, order, pay and service airline travel offers via an NDC connectivity.
  • A main advantage for travel sellers is that they can now view and compare all available airline flights and related services for any given trip on one single screen, whether they are sourced from EDIFACT, NDC or other APIs. It’s the first time travel sellers can access such a full range of air content all in one place, making it easier for them to compare offers and help their customers to find the best value.
  • As customer service is a top priority for all travel sellers, this new NDC-enabled version of Selling Platform Connect also allows for the servicing of NDC bookings. Travel sellers can cancel or change flights that have been booked via an NDC connectivity. All of these features, as well as the new graphical interface, were designed and tested in close collaboration with Amadeus customers through the NDC [X] program. The NDC-enabled version of Selling Platform Connect is currently being used by several key partners in the NDC [X] program. Gradual deployment will start over the coming months, while the solution continues to be improved with further content and functionalities.
