Amadeus has received the level 3 NDC – New Distribution Capability – certification as an aggregator from the International Air Transport Association (IATA). This comes in addition to Amadeus’ existing level 3 NDC certification as an IT provider, making Amadeus one of the first providers with dual level 3 certification.
Level 3 is the highest NDC certification and is awarded to companies that can demonstrate the ability to execute Offer and Order Management. This means that Amadeus is able to consume NDC offers from airlines and distribute them to travel sellers.
Through the NDC-X program, Amadeus is connecting airlines and travel sellers using the NDC standard. This certification has been achieved through Amadeus’ work with Travix , a leading online travel agency that joined the program earlier this year.
“We are pleased to be working with online leader Travix, and to be one of the first providers in the industry to achieve dual level 3 NDC certifications. The NDC-X program is in full execution mode and this is the latest example of Amadeus enabling the reality of NDC for the industry,” says Gianni Pisanello, VP, NDC-X program, Amadeus. “We’re making great progress on our mission to enable our airline customers to make their new NDC content available to our global travel sellers network – at scale.”
