NDCMarketplace.com – the global online marketplace for travel sellers launched at Arabian Travel Market

May 4, 2019 Business News No Comments Email Email

NDCMarketplace.com – a global online marketplace for travel sellers to access all the contents from NDC Certified Direct Connect airlines has been launched today in Dubai at Arabian Travel Market.http://www.stevecafeandcuisine.com/

NDC is a global standard by IATA embraced by 67 forward thinking airlines.  Adopting NDC standard is a great opportunity for Travel Sellers to bring further transparency to the industry benefiting the consumer. Most of the NDC Certified airlines are offering exclusive content including personalized offers, bundling of air and non-air ancillaries at a discount, flash sales etc in addition to rich media and branded fares.  NDC offers simplified booking process for Travel Partners as offer creation; pricing and fulfillment processes are done by airlines directly.

Rajendran Vellapalath, CEO said: “We are pleased to launch the first ever online marketplace for global travel sellers connecting multiple airlines with a single API or with one Login, regardless of schema standard and version.

NDC Certified airlines today offers either user credentials on their website for travel sellers or provide an API to access the NDC exclusive content. This adds more complexity to travel sellers who already have a number of screens to juggle around which results in slowing down the adoption of NDC.  Since 99% of the travel companies doesn’t have their own booking engine, agencies do not have a platform to plug in the APIs provided by the NDC airlines.  We are simplifying the process for the quick adoption of NDC.”

Travel Agents who are interested to access participating NDC airline contents have to register on NDCMarketplace.com upon which the agency credentials will be validated through IATA Financial Gateway (IFG).  Once the agency is registered the complete onboarding process will be handled by NDCMarketplace.com team including coordination with the airline, if required.

Online Travel Agents who already have a booking engine only have to build a single connection to NDCMarketplace.com to access all the current NDC airlines and other airlines as they join. The biggest advantage is that all the technology developments including enhancements to APIs from different airlines, version changes from IATA on NDC etc will be managed by the technical team of NDCMarketplace.com

Travel Agents who wish to have their own B2B Agent platform can opt for the NDC Aggregator Platform for them to add their commissions, mark ups etc in addition to bundling of other non-air commercial products like hotels or insurance etc.
