Supporting Your Airline’s Distribution Portfolio

The Farelogix Open Connect and NDC technology, together with the Farelogix Developer Program, puts airlines squarely in control over their distribution strategies. Each airline determines the optimal Distribution Portfolio for its branded NDC API. This may include a mix of NDC Connect, NDC Tech Connect, and GDS Connect.

NDC Connect: Travel sellers consume an airline's NDC API.
NDC Tech Connect: Tech aggregators consume an airline's NDC API and in turn, make the content available to their travel seller clients.
NDC GDS Connect: GDSs consume an airline's NDC API and in turn, make the content available to their travel seller network.

SPRK Agency User Interface
