Indonesia’s tiket.com has become the first OTA in South-east Asia to adopt the New Distribution Capability (NDC) programme to drive modern retailing, in a landmark partnership with Amadeus.
tiket.com will be able to access NDC offers from carriers which are connected on the Amadeus Travel Platform, such as special seat selection, baggage, and other personalised offerings. It will also be able to source additional NDC-enabled content available on Amadeus Travel Platform using the Amadeus Travel API.
Commenting on the NDC move, Andi Hendrawan, senior vice president of commercial, tiket.com, said: “It’s a key milestone I believe will help us at tiket.com to increase our transaction volume capability, system cost efficiency and accuracy. This partnership will solidify our position as the leading and pioneer OTA in Indonesia and provide our clients with offerings that are relevant at a time when travellers are getting eager to return to the skies.”
Sebastien Gibergues, vice president, online travel Asia Pacific region, Amadeus, reaffirms the company’s commitment to advancing the NDC programme and adoption. He said: “NDC is a key strategic priority for us, and we are excited to be working with tiket.com leveraging our investment in NDC technology for both travel sellers and airlines.”
