CWT has taken another step towards making wide-scale NDC adoption a reality with a new pilot programme that will see its travel counsellors make live NDC bookings for customers via its global distribution technology partners.
CWT will commence booking and servicing NDC-enabled content on Singapore Airlines and Air France-KLM, through the Amadeus Travel Platform, come August.
In addition to corporate negotiated rates, the pilot covers certain unique NDC-enabled content on these airlines. For Singapore Airlines, this will initially include special discounted fares, while additional amenities like paid seats and extra baggage will be added to the programme at a later date.
Meanwhile, with Air France-KLM, CWT’s customers will be able to access the airline’s continuous pricing offers, while seat bundles and sustainable aviation fuel options will be introduced in the near future.
CWT will expand the pilot to include other airlines on both the Amadeus and Sabre platforms through 2022.
