THE IATA-accredited NDC aggregator will provide a range wide of fares and ancillary services through via its multi-channel bookings engine platform, allowing retailers, corporate customers, universities, and wholesalers to book Lufthansa Group airlines’ NDC offerings with automatic reissue and refund options.
The deal is expected to offer a seamless user experience, and provide travel advisors with access to limited GDS content, as well as the best NDC offers from Lufthansa Group airlines.
“We are very pleased to be working with travel technology partner Aeronology to drive modern airline retailing for the benefit of our customers,” the Head of Channel Partners at Lufthansa Group Airlines, Johannes Walter, said.
“Together we aim to create a unique customer experience and shape the industry with innovations in air retailing,” he added.
Aeronology CEO Russell Carstensen said the company is proud of its association with Lufthansa Group, noting it is “an original mover” of NDC on a global scale.
“The days of going to different airline websites to access the best and most attractive offer are ending, with the type of technology Aeronology has created,” he added, pointing out that NDC distribution channels are on the rise and are building to scale, with usability and servicing becoming “much easier to manage”.
