IT solution provider IBS Software, has received new distribution capability (NDC) Capable Level 3 status, the highest level certification, by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for its iFly Res Passenger Service System (PSS), the company said.
iFly Res is one among the first PSS to attain this recognition. This status recognizes that IBS supports deployments using offer and order management messages whose schemas are compliant with the standard NDC message schema.
New Distribution Capability (NDC) is a travel industry-supported program launched by IATA to address the industry´s current distribution limitations. The program focuses on the development and market adoption of a XML-based data transmission standard that allows rich content display. This will enable airlines to differentiate their products, sell directly as well as through indirect channels such as GDS or travel agency systems and transform the way air and non-air products are retailed to corporations, leisure and business travellers.
IBS´ iFly Res addresses all the key functions of an airline´s passenger services system, including passenger reservations, schedules & flight control, inventory control, fares & ticketing, complex ancillary services management & distribution and departure control.
