Madrid : Amadeus has launched a new enhanced version of its flagship Web Services solution called Amadeus Travel API. This NDC-enabled solution will give travel agencies worldwide access to new content and fares from our airline driver customers via an NDC connectivity.

Travix, a driver customer of Amadeus' NDC [X] program, co-designed the solution and has had live NDC bookings in production since last year.

In line with the global launch of the solution, some travel agencies are to become early adopters. These major industry players include AERTiCKET, American Express Global Business Travel, BCD Travel, House of Travel and integrated tourism group TUI.

The move reflects Amadeus' ongoing commitment to driving NDC forward through its NDC [X] program and will help airlines and travel agencies deliver more personalised and differentiated travel experiences. Amadeus Travel API integrates with travel agencies' existing systems and allows them to build their own customised travel booking applications. It will be rolled out globally on a gradual basis.

Rudy Daniello, Executive Vice President, Customer Operations, Travel Channels, Amadeus said, "Over the last year, we have worked hard alongside our NDC [X] partners to develop scalable, user-friendly solutions that will give agencies access to content sourced through an NDC connectivity. This is now a reality. With the technology now in place, we look forward to seeing what new and exciting content airlines can provide to ensure worldwide adoption of NDC. We are proud to be pioneering in this field, collaborating with leading travel players and deploying truly innovative solutions for all of our customers."
