Cathay Pacific adding NDC content for Amadeus-connected travel agents

Cathay Pacific has bolstered its commitment to NDC by making plans to offer a range of content available on the Amadeus Travel Platform to travel sellers worldwide.

It builds on Cathay Pacific's existing distribution strategy with the carrier's use of Amadeus Altéa NDC. 

Work is underway by both organisations on integrating Cathay Pacific's NDC-sourced content into the Amadeus Travel Platform.

This will allow Amadeus travel agents worldwide to search, compare, book and service Cathay Pacific content via NDC in one merged display, alongside other content.

Cathay's new NDC offers will include content such as seat selection, fare families, and special fares.

Critical tools such as ticketing exchange and refunds will also be available.  

Martin Xu, General Manager, Sales & Distribution, Cathay Pacific, said: "We are pleased to reach this milestone in our journey with Amadeus. We believe NDC is a major driver in the future of airline content distribution and will be key in helping us reach new customers." 

Travel sellers are expected to be able to make Cathay Pacific NDC bookings through Amadeus' NDC-enabled solutions starting from the first quarter of 2022 in several markets.

In addition, Amadeus' flagship solution for corporations, Amadeus cytric Travel & Expense, will be able to process Cathay Pacific's bookings via NDC in 2022.

The airline's NDC-sourced content will then progressively be rolled out globally in order to reach all Amadeus-connected agents. 

Javier Laforgue, Executive Vice President, Air Distribution, Amadeus said: "This partnership will help Cathay Pacific strengthen its brand and offer more visual and tailored content for its customers, which is more important than ever amid the current market circumstances."
