Amadeus Achieves IATA Level 3 NDC Certification as an Aggregator

Amadeus has received Level 3 New Distribution Capability (NDC) certification as an aggregator from International Air Transport Association (IATA).

 This latest certification is 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 take 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 execu-tion mode and this is the latest example of Amadeus enabling the reality of NDC for the industry,” said 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.”

John Mangelaars, CEO, Travix says, “It’s been an exciting few months working with Amadeus, as part of the NDC-X program, to design a solution which will give online travel sellers access to aggregated NDC and non-NDC content. Later this year, our teams will be using this NDC-enabled solution to ‘shop, order and pay’ through Amadeus. The latest certification shows the strength of our partnership and capabilities using IATA’s NDC standard.”

Yanik Hoyles, Director, New Distribution Capability Program, IATA, added, “By achieving NDC Level 3 certification as an aggregator, Amadeus is demonstrating its commitment to driving the industrialization of NDC, supporting a new era of airline retailing that will deliver a better shopping experience for air travelers. This certification solidifies the great progress made by Amadeus to date and I look forward to see what’s coming next.”
