Travelport has launched Lufthansa Group airlines’ NDC content and servicing capabilities in the Travelport+ platform. Agents using Travelport+ will be able to easily search and compare NDC offers from the Lufthansa Group airlines, which include Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS and Air Dolomiti.
Travelport’s NDC content and servicing solution for the Lufthansa Group airlines has first become available to all agency customers located in Austria, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the UK. Access will expand to agency customers located in additional European countries in the coming weeks and will continue to roll out to Travelport+ customers in the Americas, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific regions in early 2024.
Jason Clarke, chief commercial officer, travel partners, Travelport, said: “Our NDC solution is designed to minimise complex retailing processes so that agents using Travelport+ can easily shop and book NDC offers from the Lufthansa Group and provide a seamless servicing experience for travellers.”
Travelport+ enables agency customers to access a wide range of rich content, fares, and unique offerings from the Lufthansa Group airlines all in one place, enhanced by the Content Curation Layer. This technology enabler, embedded inside Travelport+, uses powerful artificial intelligence and machine-learning capabilities to provide agents and travellers a more modern retailing experience with accurate search responses, highly relevant results, and greater clarity and transparency.
By providing travel agents worldwide with the capability to seamlessly shop, compare, and book NDC offers from all Lufthansa Group airlines through Travelport, this ensures that travel customers have simplified access to a broad range of choices and optimal options.
