Travelport has achieved Level-3 aggregator certification under Iata’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) initiative. 

It is the first GDS to acquire this certification and will work with airline technology specialist, Farelogix, to implement the first such NDC connection with a major global airline. Details of this development will be announced soon.

Level 3 is the highest Iata certification and is reserved for companies that demonstrate the ability to provide full offer and order management.

“GDSs are a fundamental business partner for the NDC to drive significant volumes,” said Yanik Hoyles, director of Iata’s NDC programme. “As a certified aggregator, Travelport will now be able to bring NDC to its existing base and broaden the scope to a wider range of airlines.”

Travelport’s senior vp and md of Air Commerce, Derek Sharp, said NDC status would complement its airline database ATPCo, which connected travel buyers to more than 280 ancillaries. “It will also complement our extensive existing API connections, our tools for critical workflows, servicing and synchronisation.”
