Avianca Airlines and AirGateway are pleased to announce their NDC partnership. Avianca NDC content will be available through AirGateway to IATA-authorized travel agencies that have a direct commercial relationship with the airline.
AirGateway provides both an aggregated API and an Agent Desktop solution that allows for shopping, booking, and servicing of flights and ancillaries (voiding, cancel and refunds, rebooking and airline disruption management) on one single screen and with instant confirmation of any action by the airline NDC system.
In addition, AirGateway enables downstream processes for accounting and tax information of all NDC bookings to be transmitted to the finance modules in the agency back office.
We are very pleased to onboard the first Latin-American carrier to our platform and we hope to contribute to the adoption of NDC in the region. Now Latin-American agencies can work with NDC in a matter of days through our end-to-end Agent Desktop solution Bookingpad
said Jorge Díaz, CEO at AirGateway.
Signing this agreement with AirGateway is exciting news for our partner travel agencies as they can access Avianca content more simply. We continue working together to create enhanced personalization opportunities in the sales experience, and we hope that sales agents can see the benefits of working with an NDC scheme as part of a modernization and digital transformation process
said Catalina Nannig, Avianca´s Vicepresident of Sales and Distribution.
Agents will not only be able to search, compare and book but also to fully service Avianca NDC content in addition to another 25 airlines on a single platform with both API and web interfaces.
This marks an important milestone for AirGateway towards its goal of making the largest collection of NDC content available to managed and unmanaged travel companies.
AirGateway is a Berlin-based travel tech company and one of the leading IATA NDC (New Distribution Capability) aggregators. It is directly connected to more than 25 airlines, serving more than 200 IATA-accredited agencies in more than 15 countries both via API and an end-to-end Agent Desktop solution.
The AirGateway open platform also allows other partners such as booking tools, travel mobile app providers, traveler profile management tools, reporting tools or mid/back office systems to participate in the NDC value proposition, facilitating easy transition of all its legacy processes to the agencies.
