XML - The building block of NDC
NDC's technical foundation is based on the Extensible Markup Language (XML) Internet programming language. XML is the technology that enables travel consumers to have an online experience similar in content and display to what they can find on retail websites. The NDC XML capability will be based on the Open AXIS schemas.
IATA XML Standards are released under Passenger & Airport Data Interchange Standards (PADIS) governance. To support NDC business requirements Open AXIS's schemas are being reviewed and will be progressively submitted to PADIS for standardization to form a part of its regular releases and in alignment with other IATA standards. The schemas are open and available for use by the entire industry.
