The platform comes with a merchandising engine and will also integrate it directly to the PSS of any airline.

YES. The airlines can directly connect and distribute their content through the Aggregator Platform.  Travel Agencies’ will book as well as purchase the airline products and will report it directly to the BSP’s.

 

Which are the Phases of implementation?

The implementation will be carried out in 3 Phases according to the scope based on airline requirement. In the first phase itself we will be able to get the airline directly into IATA NDC pilot test. First Phase with IATA NDC (flights + hotels + cars + insurance + activities + event tickets + basic merchandising and rich content) and settlement through BSP, Own Account, Cash and Credit Card.
