Title: New Distribution Capability | NDC Travel

(No Transcript)
 What is New Distribution Capability? Why Do We
Need NDC?
  • New Distribution Capability is a new XML-based
    data transmission standard. NDC creates
    opportunities to standardize data transfer. Its
    a standard developed by the International Air
    Transport Association (IATA) to enhance
    communication between airlines and travel agents.
  • The NDC Standard enables the travel industry to
    alter the way air products are retailed to
    companies, leisure, and business travelers by
    eliminating the industry's current distribution
  • Product differentiation and time-to-market
  • Access to complete and rich air content
  • Transparent shopping experience

  • An industry standard will enable a more efficient
    airline distribution system, benefiting airlines,
    agencies, GDSs, IT providers, and travel
    start-ups. With NDC, an airline may quickly offer
    this traveler a package that includes a direct
    flight, an extra checked bag, and a seat in
    business class based on their customer data.
    Furthermore, NDC enables airlines to deliver this
    content directly to travel agents and travel
    management companies (TMC) without requiring GDS.
  • The airline sector has been working on NDC since
    2012. Travelport recognized the need for airlines
    to provide its large inventory of airfares and
    ancillaries in an interactive, customized, and
    engaging manner for indirect sales on their
  • New Distribution Capability supports travel
    agents and agencies in minimizing operating
    costs, time-consuming procedures, documentation
    techniques, and improving the advantages of
    different price alternatives. Furthermore, the
    desire of airlines to have more control over
    their content and improve their sales abilities
    led to the travel sector's need for NDC.
  • NDC gives travel companies additional information
    regarding airline services and ancillaries, and
    rich content paves the way for technological
    advancement. NDC provides access to the Internet
    Booking Engine (IBE) and the Global Distribution
    System, lowering costs and increasing revenues.

What benefits does New Distribution Capability
  • Personalized shopping experience and access to
    customer information. The majority of client
    personal data is currently kept by
    intermediaries, OTAs, and GDSs. It implies that
    airlines only receive minimal information on
    their customers, which prevents them from
    personalizing the purchase experience, which has
    become a standard in modern travel eCommerce. The
    goal of the NDC standard is to give airlines
    direct information about their customers.
  • Content and pricing autonomy. Most airlines
    publish their tariffs through ATPCO, the
    technology supplier and primary source of price
    data. Having a third-party act as an intermediary
    between revenue management and distribution
    channels implies that airlines miss out on
    dynamic pricing. Dynamic pricing refers to the
    capacity to produce personalized ticket and
    travel package offers based on specific client
    information. The new XML standard enables
    airlines to create their own APIs and alter
    pricing independently, adding value to their
    offerings and adjusting rates uniquely for each
  • Rich content offers, ancillaries, and discounts.
    Airlines are unable to incorporate ancillaries in
    their offerings since flight data is distributed
    via GDS's EDIFACT (Electronic Data Interchange
    for Administration, Commerce, and Transport). As
    ancillaries are the primary source of profit for
    carriers, this leads to financial losses for
    service providers.
  • Product differentiation. The traditional GDS
    system allows airlines to show fares and
    timetables. While tariff metasearch engines and
    OTAs make it easy for travelers to evaluate
    prices, airlines cant market their added value
    services and fully compete. This difficulty is
    solved by having rich content that covers all
    service data.
  • Reduced reliance on legacy systems. Most airlines
    use traditional passenger service systems (PSS)
    that contain reservation information, pricing,
    and flight schedules. The primary function of the
    PSS is to indicate which seats are available for
    a given flight. PSSs may have poor performance
    and many other restrictions, and most PSS
    providers lag in modernization.

Why do airlines develop New Distribution Channels
  • It gives businesses more control over their
    products, improves their distinctiveness,
    enhances the number of services they may supply,
    and personalizes the offer, thus increasing their
  • Gain more control over their distribution
    strategy to deliver unique offerings and reduce
    the dependence on third-party distributors.
  • Create additional revenue with expanded offers
    that incorporate special features and services to
    differentiate and promote beyond a simple,
    text-based price sort.
  • Save costs by shifting and recovering
    distribution costs through GDS fees and
    commercial conversations with distribution
  • Increase traveler engagement by enabling insight
    into shopper preferences and delivering
    customized deals.

How do travel companies benefit from New
Distribution capabilities?
  • It increases income for airlines while lowering
    distribution costs. Small to medium-sized
    airlines, air charters, air ambulances, and
    airline aggregators benefit from our top airline
    tools. Our Airline Booking Engine module displays
    airline inventory, availability, and pricing in
    real-time. B2C / B2B users can book an airline
    seat and create a PNR.
  • With NDC, airlines can change and adjust their
    prices, giving their customers more
    personalization. NDC is open to IT providers,
    intermediaries, third parties, and even non-IATA
    members. It is a standard that allows travel
    industry providers to add value-added services
    and new revenue streams by collaborating and
    working with their partners.
  • New Distribution Capability (NDC) allows the
    distribution of airfares and ancillaries through
    third parties which are being developed by the
    airline association IATA. It is a new way for
    them to connect with airlines and could open up
    innovative solutions to deliver air content to
  • NDC is the future of Airline Distribution The
    travel consumer has changed and is becoming their
    own travel agents as they have as much or
    sometimes more information than traditional
    travel agencies. The changing nature of the
    travel consumer is spurring Metasearch and the
    larger Online Travel Agencies to evolve into
    online marketplaces where all the travel needs of
    a consumer are fulfilled.

  • Travelopro is a new distribution capability
    channel for airlines that enables your travel
    company and a worldwide marketplace to improve
    the connection between airlines, travel agencies,
    and agents.
  • We are committed to providing the most
    comprehensive choice of content for all clients
    across all booking channels, so we have
    collaborated with Amadeus, Sabre, Travelport, and
    key airlines to guarantee our customers maximize
    NDC benefits. We provide complete end-to-end and
    seamless content integration via NDC integration.
  • Our primary goal is to provide multichannel
    service via highly scalable software solutions.
    We are one of the most rapidly evolving NDC
    distribution arms of any airline. We can help
    with whatever is needed to get you NDC ready by
    using our NDC adapters over existing PSS. We
    offer complete airline reservation system
    software for the aviation business, including
    PSS, distribution, analytics, frequent flyer,
    online booking engine, etc.

In Conclusion
  • In the new era of multi-source content
    distribution, NDC may supply dynamic pricing and
    product information to create the final offer to
    all partners.
  • It also allows for a better price comparison
    experience, allowing agencies to book, pay, and
    issue tickets. These are critical features for
    providing the individualized offers that the new
    distribution era demands. NDC is an excellent
    solution for tailoring an end-to-end travel
    experience to the preferences of its customers.
  • TMCs and companies can use it to receive
    comprehensive fares from direct link airlines via
    GDSs, LCCs, and aggregators in the search. NDC
    aims to reduce the industry's distribution
    constraints and enable access to rich and
    complete air content with a transparent
    purchasing experience by allowing airlines to
    offer their tickets directly to consumers.
  • The New Distribution Capability solution is part
    of a comprehensive platform that puts airlines in
    control of their retailing strategy. The IATA NDC
    complements merchandising technology with rich
    content and branding.
  • It collaborates closely with IATA and airline
    corporations to deliver industry-leading content
    via travel commerce platforms. The International
    Air Transportation Association (IATA) designed
    the NDC standard to allow airline service
    providers to offer rich information and
    ancillaries to their consumers.
