Amadeus and Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) today announce that CWT will join Amadeus’ NDC-X program.
Through the program, CWT will be working with Amadeus in order to connect travel sellers and airlines using the NDC (New Distribution Capability) standard.
“It’s great to have CWT on board as part of NDC-X,” says Gianni Pisanello, VP, NDC-X program, Amadeus. “Working with innovative, forward-thinking partners such as CWT will allow us to ensure that our solutions provide the right content and functionalities for a wide spectrum of business needs. Our program is gaining real traction, with a flurry of announcements so far this year as we bring leading travel sellers and airlines together to drive progress with NDC.”
“We’re pleased to be part of the NDC-X program, and look forward to working with all our industry partners on making this a success,” said Vince Chirico, CWT’s SVP Global Network & Technology Partners. “Partnering with the GDS is the fastest way to realize the potential of NDC, delivering enhanced choice for our corporate traveler customers and transforming the traveler experience.”
Amadeus’ NDC-X program brings together all NDC initiatives across the company – as an IT provider and an aggregator – and Amadeus is working with several airlines and travel sellers to drive the adoption of NDC across the industry.
