Travelport and International Airlines Group (IAG) announces a distribution agreement. The deal brings New Distribution Capability (NDC) content from Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia, and Vueling to Travelport-connected travel agencies around the world. By channeling its NDC content through the next-generation Travelport and platform, IAG offers travel retailers a wider range of content includes Additional Price Points and an expanded selection of ancillary products.
Celia Muñoz Espin, sales strategy and distribution director at Iberia, said this significant agreement is focused on providing added value to customers with access to our exclusive NDC products and fares. Travelport is a trusted provider of technology within the travel industry as it evolves towards next-generation travel retailing. It is important for Iberia to partner with technology providers that have proven expertise and fulfill the demand for customer-focused innovation.
Travelport and IAG are progressing well on the technical solution for NDC distribution and will continue to add features and functionality ahead of NDC content being rolled out. Chris Ramm, vice president of global enterprise, air partners at Travelport, said unlocking the potential of sophisticated multi-source content like NDC, by making it easier for the trade to access and sell, is a key part of our plans for Travelport.
