The key role of the aggregator in NDC adoption

Across the airline industry today, the commitment to NDC and the freedom it offers airlines to have the same control over indirect distribution as they enjoy in the direct channel is well recognised and accepted. The pathway to mass adoption, however, has been slower than many of us would have expected. For NDC to reach critical mass, the various players need to reach a common level of interaction and momentum.

This white paper, written by Travel in Motion, explores the very important role played by the NDC aggregators who sit between the airlines and the sellers and play a key role in supporting airlines to capitalise on the NDC opportunity. The awareness of the significance of this role and the point of view of the aggregators are not always congruent. We hope this paper will help to remedy this discrepancy.

At Datalex, we are committed to NDC and will continue to invest in our product, Datalex NDC. We see the indirect channel as an important conduit for airline retailing, we recognise the importance of the ‘Offer’ and the need to service, via NDC, to the same level of sophistication enjoyed in the direct channel. If collectively we can achieve this, we will reach a worthwhile level of mass adoption.
