Qantas to launch new NDC portal geared at travel agents


Qantas will plug the gap for agents unable to access its NDC content through existing technology partners by becoming one itself.

Qantas will open its NDC content to agents not already connected via a tech partner.

Qantas will introduce a new portal early next year designed especially for travel agents to better access its New Distribution Capability (NDC) content for their clients.

Set to be available through the Qantas Agency Connect website, the portal will open NDC content to remaining agents who can’t currently access Qantas Distribution Platform content through an existing approved technology partner such as Amadeus, Sabre, Travelport, Aeronology and more.

The new custom platform will enable agents to shop, book and service flights and NDC content already connected via the Qantas Distribution Platform, including domestic and trans-Tasman fares which are discounted by up to five percent compared to published retail fares.

Qantas has recently updated its NDC Capability Listing Tool and glossary which provides a comprehensive rundown of what its Qantas Distribution Platform offers agents and the benefits available by booking through it.

Registrations for the new portal will be open in February next year.
