TPConnects, the first IATA New Distribution Capability (NDC) recently launched Holiday Shopping, a new dynamic holiday packaging tool for airlines and travel agents.
The new tool offers the build-up of an entire holiday package — including air, hotel, transfers, car, tours, cruise, activity components — through the TPConnects Travel Retailing Booking Engine.
Holiday Shopping uses real-time availability, content and pricing from suppliers (airline, hotels, car etc) to generate a complete day wise itinerary. Individual trip components including ancillaries are bundled together based on specific traveller needs and preferences, and each trip is completely flexible and customizable.
The TPConnects platform offers easy access to all major global distribution systems, central reservation systems, hotel property management solutions (PMS), hotel consolidators, car rental providers, rail providers as well as tours, activities and Low Cost Carriers (LCC).
