New Distribution Capability (NDC) content from airlines currently not available via GDS channels is now available through ATPI Ticket Window, a proprietary fare aggregation system by TMC, ATPI.
ATPI Ticket Window sources fares and availability from around the world and delivers a consolidated view to ATPI agent desktops. The system ensures that agents can book the best possible fare, even if it is only available on a non-GDS platform or in one particular country.
The new enhancement to ATPI Ticket Window enables NDC content not available through the GDS, i.e. special fares available through airline’s own NDC channels, and content from existing APIs with partners and LCCs.
Andrew Waller, CEO, ATPI Group, explained: “Content fragmentation is a challenge that we have continuously innovated to find ways around. NDC is no different. We cannot rely wholly on future GDS NDC solutions and they are still some way off.”
This is the latest ATPI technology release following the TMC’s global alliance with NDC-certified Serko and its new booking tool Zeno, which already provides integrated NDC content and capability. ATPI is licensed to offer Zeno to new and existing customers in more than 50 countries for the next five years.
