We’re creating a more connected travel industry, underpinned by sustainability and long-term investor relations.
Munckhof Group, expert in passenger transport and travel reinforces its relationship with Amadeus, reference technology provider of the tourism and travel industry and announces its endorsement of Amadeus’ NDC-X program
Amadeus NDC-X is a dedicated program to drive the industrialization of NDC and ensure it works for all travel players. The program brings together all the NDC activities across Amadeus – as an IT provider and aggregator.
As part of the program, one of the major developments in the coming year will be the continued evolution of the Amadeus Travel Platform which brings together airline, hotel, alternative lodging, rail, ground transport and in-destination content all in one place. This includes NDC content, which we are actively working on with airlines and travel sellers around the world.
This means customers of Munckhof Group will be able to search, compare and book NDC content together with the content from any other source (EDIFACT and other APIs) – all in a fully integrated manner and within the same workflow.
According to Tom Roefs, CEO of Munckhof Group: "NDC has to respond to the needs of airlines and travel sellers, and should have a direct benefit for the travelers. Also, the travel industry needs to resolve the progressive fragmentation of content so that travel agencies can access the broadest offer in a simple and integrated manner. This is particularly important for our corporate clients and their travelers. That is why we are excited to continually collaborate with Amadeus and endorse its NDC-X program. "
Kurt Van der biesen, Head of Business Travel at Amadeus adds: "The NDC-X project is one of the key pillars of the new present that Amadeus is building for the tourism and travel industry. Amadeus aims to lead a much more personalized, connected and sustainable industry, which contributes to redefining the world of retail distribution. NDC has the potential to deliver new benefits for the entire travel industry and we’re working with airlines and travel sellers around the world to drive NDC forward. The support of Munckhof Group is great news, because once again we have the support of key travel agency partners. "
