Air France-KLM, Travelport Launch New Distribution Content

Air France-KLM and Travelport have announced that the airline’s new distribution content (NDC) is now live on Travelport+. As a result, Travelport customers will have direct access to the airline’s NDC.

“NDC will be increasingly important in the distribution strategy of Air France and KLM. The launch of Air France-KLM’s live NDC content in the Travelport+ platform marks an important milestone in our retailing journey. It demonstrates our commitment to continue to improve and provide multiple connection possibilities and a variety of more personalized services and products for our customers,” said Angus Clarke, CEO, Air France-KLM.

With Air France-KLM’s NDC, Travelport+ connected travel agencies will have full NDC functionality: shopping, booking, servicing and private fares to cover multiple segments and market specifics. Additionally, they will benefit from the latest content such as continuous pricing and ancillaries, along with personalization, which the airline group will continually develop over time.

“We are thrilled to see Air France-KLM’s success with this ground-breaking NDC initiative, making NDC content via Travelport accessible to agents and travel retailers”, said Damian Hickey, global vice president and global head of airline partners at Travelport. “Through Travelport+, we are helping Air France-KLM expand simplified access to their NDC content, and deliver their best travel offers to our travel agency customers. This milestone assures Air France-KLM as an innovative and competitive market supplier while also cementing our position as a market leader in NDC and modern travel retailing."
