Global travel agency group Lufthansa City Center (LCC) and Israel-based NDC provider Atriis Technologies have launched the pilot operation of the international New Distribution Capability (NDC) aggregator, Lucy, for Singapore Airlines’ (SIA) content.
This new partnership sees SIA continuing to strengthen its commitment to the NDC game, following its first foray into NDC last year.
LCC’s Singapore-based agency, Citystate Ardent Travel, which ran the pilot operation, is the first South-east Asian agency to implement the Lucy NDC system.
Lucy is a NDC platform developed by Atriis Technologies and launched by LCC in 2018 to create new distribution opportunities. The multi-provider platform leverages technology to integrate and consolidate data of traditional GDS providers such as Amadeus, Sabre and Travelport.
Also available as a mobile and corporate booking engine, Lucy offers direct access to the content of dozens of travel providers, inclusive of hotel brands, mobility providers and global airlines. Its global marketplace functionality also allows agencies to purchase travel components from each other.
