We discuss the latest APIs, scalability, and how Rakesh sees airline distribution developing in the future.

Rakesh tells us why low cost airlines in the region do not seem to be as involved in NDC, and how Sabre is working with Singapore Airlines, which is currently Level 4 NDC certified and will soon become @scale NDC certified - the level above.

Rakesh also tells us why Sabre's new long-term agreement with ATPCO and Routehappy is so important, and what it means to agencies and airlines.
