Distribution and Airline Retailing with NDC (e-learning)

About the Course

Delivered in media-rich and interactive animation, this course is a journey that begins by comparing existing direct and indirect air distribution channels. Then it presents today’s emerging distribution systems supported by New Distribution Capability (NDC) standards.

You will appreciate how airlines optimally distribute their products and services through their own website channels and how the industry is working to replicate the same functionality in indirect channels used by travel agents and other intermediaries.

This course ends with a tour of innovative enhancements in distribution that are only possible in an NDC environment. Such enhancements benefit all players in the travel value chain, creating an improved user and customer experience.

This course will satisfy your curiosity about NDC, dispel potential myths, and provide practical learning through NDC simulation.
