At the IATA World Passenger Symposium in October 2017, IATA announced it was inviting airlines with strong aspirations to grow their NDC volumes rapidly, to join the NDC Leaderboard.
IATA will provide support to the Leaderboard on related matters such as payment, architecture, schemas, workflows, etc. It will also provide greater support in the areas of engagement, adoption, technology and innovation.
IATA will also continue to support all its other members which choose to adopt NDC. These other airlines will also benefit indirectly from the Leaderboard. The push for critical mass will contribute to a rapid growth of the number of travel agents, corporate buyers and consumers using NDC.
IATA will share implementation roadmaps which will help speed up subsequent deployments. And finally, the push from the members of the NDC Leaderboard will help IT players to enhance their solutions and trigger innovation from new entrants– which will increase competition and speed to market for the followers.
