Amadeus has announced that it received Level 3 New Distribution Capability certification as an IT provider from the International Air Transport Association.
Level 3 is the highest stage of NDC certification.
Airlines using Amadeus’ new Altéa NDC solution developed earlier this year and now IATA certified, will have the option to distribute their prices and fares, including ancillary and fare family content, using NDC Offers & Orders.
“We are proud to be industry leaders on the adoption of NDC-XML.
“Amadeus is committed to working with IATA to further standardise messages, data flows and to support the evolution of this new messaging standard.
“Our goal is to help airlines personalise their offers and to distribute their fares with accuracy, flexibility and speed.
“If airlines want to choose NDC-XML messaging to deliver their fares and to accomplish these goals, we are fully capable of delivering,” said Julia Sattel, Amadeus global head of Airline IT.
Amadeus started investing in XML connectivity in 2007, when it became the first travel tech player to implement XML connectivity with easyJet.
