Emirates has agreed to provide its New Distribution Capability inventory to Melbourne-based Aeronology’s platform via Aeronology’s NDC Direct Connect technology.
The connection will allow travel professionals connected to Aeronology to search, book and service Emirates’ NDC content as well as traditional global distribution system content on a single screen.
Emirates last month introduced a surcharge on bookings made via GDSs as it launched its NDC-enabled platform, though Travelport reached an agreement with Emirates to provide access to Emirates content without charge through a new dedicated channel. Aeronology charges a small per-transaction fee as its revenue source.
Aeronology last month added Singapore Airlines and Qantas to its NDC platform.
