About

The New Distribution Capability (NDC) Program is a travel industry-supported program launched by IATA for the development and market adoption of a new, XML-based data transmission standard (NDC Standard). The NDC Standard will enhance communication between airlines and travel agents and will be open to any third party, intermediary, IT provider or non-IATA member, to implement and use. The NDC Program will transform the way airline products and services are retailed to travellers; facilitating product differentiation and time-to-market for a transparent shopping experience. This introductory NDC training course designed for airlines, provides an in depth review of multiple NDC concepts to support you building your business case and identify the most relevant deployment options for your distribution strategy.
