Chinese provider of travel services, Trip.com Group, has strengthened its partnership with British Airways and Iberia by connecting to the New Distribution Capability (NDC).
The NDC partnership facilitates priority access to a richer and a more complete inventory from the airline as well as transparency of the shopping experience on its online travel agency, Trip.com. It offers the travellers better content on both carriers’ flights with additional fare options on long haul and short haul additional price points.
Since the partnership launch in mid-2019, the group expanded the product offering, adding premium cabins and ancillaries. The first six months generated over GBP 2.5 million (USD 3.27 million) worth of bookings on the API alone.
