Modern airline retailing has reached a critical point, offering opportunities for travel agencies to enhance customer satisfaction, differentiate themselves, and achieve business growth. However, the increasingly fragmented landscape makes it challenging for travel sellers to navigate.

Navigating the New Distribution Capability (NDC) 

The New Distribution Capability (NDC), a travel industry-supported program launched by IATA, aims to modernize the way air products are retailed to travelers, corporations, and agencies. NDC enables airlines to distribute their products more effectively, offering richer content, personalized offers, and dynamic pricing. Despite its benefits, integrating NDC content with existing systems and other sources like Low-Cost Carriers (LCC), aggregators, and Global Distribution Systems (GDS) remains a significant challenge for travel sellers. 

The Fragmented Landscape: A Challenge for Travel Agencies 

Travel agencies face the daunting task of managing multiple sources of air content, each with its own system and interface. This fragmentation can lead to inefficiencies, increased training requirements for agents, and inconsistency in customer service. To thrive in this environment, travel sellers need a solution that consolidates all air content into a single, easy-to-use interface.
