IBS' software solution attains Level 3 status from IATA

IBS Software has been accorded 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.

This status recognizes that IBS supports deployments using offer and order management messages whose schemas are compliant with the standard NDC message schema, version PADIS Publication 15.2. IATA provides the only official industry certification program in support of NDC standard.

(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 is an IT solution provider to the global air transportation industry.
