Over the last six years, IATA collaborated and amassed considerable inputs from travel industry stakeholders such as Airlines, Airline Passenger Service Systems, Travel Management Companies, Online Travel Agencies, Corporates, Global Distribution Systems on improving the NDC standard that was initially launched in September 2015 as version 15.2.
This has led to a more consistent, robust, and simplified standard schema that can be used across the industry stakeholders for their own business requirements and integrate with other stakeholders quickly and easily. Version 18.2 is stabilized on end-to-end distribution in travel industry (Air, Hotel, Car) process flow comprising of Shopping, Order, Modify the Order, Fulfillment and to deliver enhanced customer experiences.
