Qantas will be among airlines joining the Amadeus NDC-X scheme as the travel technology provider moves forward with the new standard.
Amadeus will connect to the Qantas Distribution Platform and deliver NDC content to travel sellers.
This will allow travel agents to book NDC content alongside other travel content, enabling greater personalisation for travellers.
Amadeus will have access to the Qantas Distribution Platform to continue to provide travel sellers with all of the airline’s offering, through the agents’ preferred booking channel.
This announcement follows Amadeus and the Australian carrier renewing an IT and distribution partnership.
Amadeus NDC-X vice president Gianni Pisanello said: “Our programme will enable airlines to sell their NDC offers across travel sellers around the world, through our NDC-enabled travel platform.
“We’re excited to have Qantas on board as part of our leading industry program.
“The Amadeus travel platform is designed with both airline and travel sellers needs in mind, and we are looking forward to making NDC content available within it.
“We’re making great progress, and will have online travel bookings in production later this year, meaning that the full booking flow of ‘shop, order and pay’ will take place using the NDC standard.”
