Travix joins Amadeus NDC-X program
The online travel company will co-design an NDC-enabled solution to help OTAs deliver "more personalised" experiences.
Travix will provide input into the design of an NDC-based Amadeus Web Services solution that will enable travel agencies to shop, order and pay for flights and add ancillaries and services to the booking.
The two companies work together to provide online travel sellers access to aggregated NDC and non-NDC content and define servicing requirements once a booking has been made, such as cancellations or added ancillaries.
John Mangelaars, chief executive at Travix, said: “In a diverse content world, its crucial to have one single end-to-end process for booking and servicing NDC and non-NDC content.
"With NDC, we hope to have richer airline content for our customers, ultimately helping us deliver more personalised and differentiated travel experiences. Were excited to work alongside Amadeus and be part of the NDC-X program to drive progress for the online travel agency community.”
Gianni Pisanello, vice president, NDC-X program, Amadeus, added: “Our objective is to make NDC content easy to access and to compare with other content so travel sellers around the world, and also travel providers, can provide the consistency, transparency, and choice travelers are looking for.
"As part of our NDC-X program, we are working with several airlines and travel sellers to define solutions that make NDC work for all travel players on a global scale. Were excited to be working with Travix as part of this program.”
