The agreement covers distribution of Qantas’ content and integration into its recently announced New Distribution Capability (NDC) platform, Qantas Distribution Platform (QDP).
Travelport’s Rich Content and Branding merchandising solution has been deployed, giving over 65,000 of Travelport-connected travel agencies globally access to images of cabins and meals.
These agents will also be able to book ancillaries such as extra leg room seating.
Travelport is the first operator of a global distribution system to be granted IATA’s highest certification for its NDC airline distribution technology.
This makes it well-positioned to support QDP as the airline becomes one of the first to deploy NDC content later this year.
