The agreement marks an important milestone since 2012, when the International Air Transport Association came up with the idea of new technical standards, such as communication between airlines, agencies and suppliers.

Air France-KLM and Amadeus have signed an agreement with commercial terms allowing modern airlines to sell the new distribution capacity to travel agencies via NDC. Airbus Don`t confuse online ticketing agreements with codeshare or operations carriers: this displays the interline ticketing agreements of a valid airline or between two airlines with TGAD entry. This separate IT agreement is in addition to an extended distribution agreement signed last year with Amadeus. Amadeus` global network of tour operators continues to support the airline`s expansion plans, effectively expand its reach and provide its offerings to all travelers. This new long-term IT agreement, combined with a recent expansion of its fleet, will lead the airline into its next phase of international growth. The Interline Ticketing Agreement (ITA) table refers to the list of airlines that have entered into an existing ticketing agreement with other airlines. “We are pleased to expand our long-standing partnership with the Air France KLM Group to offer innovative retail capabilities. This is an important step on the NDC path to enable large-scale introduction,” said Decius Valmorbida, President Travel Unit at Amadeus.
“This is proof of the strength of our technology and collaborative approach, as we create a sustainable framework that adds value to airlines, travel sellers and travelers to achieve the industry`s vision for modern retail.” “We are delighted that our NDC content will soon be accessible to Air France KLM partner agents via the Amadeus platform,” said Pieter Bootsma, Air France-KLM Chief Revenue Officer. “NDC is a key innovation for Air France-KLM, as it allows Air France KLM customers to benefit from more attractive and tailor-made offers, such as continuous prices and tailor-made packages. This agreement is an important step in our distribution strategy and complements our existing NDC distribution network, especially for travel agencies with higher service needs, such as.B. Business offices. This is another important milestone in Amadeus` NDC [X] program, which brings together airlines and travel sellers around the world to advance NDC together. Now more than ever, there is a need for cooperation across all industries and for fully integrated, fully integrated, automated and scalable end-to-end solutions to ensure that bookings can be made and used efficiently. Other airlines have since added extras, including Qantas last year and, as Skift reported in July, Singapore Airlines. The broader industry efforts are aimed at enabling airlines to sell and sell travelers or, as they prefer to say, create personalized and bespoke offers.. . .
