AmTrav data highlights dramatic fare differences without NDC access

AmTrav data highlights dramatic fare differences without NDC access

Thursday, 25 Apr, 2023 0

American Airlines restricting lowest fares to only NDC-connected corporate channels is having an impact on flight costs.

The AmTrav connected platform for business travel released data revealing the costs.

It found when booking American flights without access to New Distribution Technology, corporate customers are paying more on at least 34% of bookings.

The fare difference averages $128 more per booking.

AmTrav can also compare fares available via NDC to the higher fares available via legacy technology channels on thousands of searches and bookings.

“There is a misconception that only American’s Basic Economy and certain leisure fares are impacted,” said Jeff Klee, CEO of AmTrav.

“But the data we’ve collected shows us that American NDC has much lower fares for corporate customers on many Economy and First Class bookings.”

AmTrav will update this fare data daily at for corporate travel buyers, and analysts to continue to have access to the latest information.

Additional analysis will be posted weekly on the AmTrav blog.
