Sabre Corporation has released its first set of New Distribution Capability (NDC) APIs with launch carrier, United Airlines, enabling the airline to offer customers new fare options and additional flight amenities for a more comprehensive shopping experience.
Sabre’s Beyond NDC Agency Partners can now use the capabilities of its advanced shopping API to integrate and normalise air content from all sources, including traditional, low-cost carrier and NDC offers.
The travel technology company says this development is “a significant step forward for the travel industry”, as the pan-industry vision moves NDC closer to becoming an everyday reality for travellers, carriers, agencies, corporations and more.
Sabre will continue to work with all its Beyond NDC airline partners to integrate their NDC content this year, and will also release additional capabilities throughout 2019, including integration into its agent desktop workspace, Sabre Red 360.
Sabre has been granted a NDC Level 3 Capable (Offer and Order Management) IT provider by IATA.
