Amadeus and United Airlines have reported the successful launch of Amadeus’ Airline Ancillary Services Solution using NDC-XML (v1.0) connectivity. This marks the industry’s first NDC-XML solution in the travel agency channel in North America, Amadeus says.
With this launch, Amadeus subscribers in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands can now seamlessly book United’s extra-legroom seats for their customers.
The ancillary services solution enables agents to proactively offer and book United’s Economy Plus seats for their customers during the initial booking or after a ticket has been issued.
Amadeus says its Ancillary Service Solution is now supporting airlines to deploy ancillary services in over 95 markets worldwide. Currently, 58 airlines have signed up for the program.
