Saudi Arabian Airlines has recently announced its key decision to implement International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) New Distribution Capability (NDC) in a standard approach. Saudia has appointed TPConnects, a leading technology solutions provider, as its NDC distribution partner to manage the NDC standard platform.

NDC standards facilitates Saudi Airlines to offer its guests the opportunity to have a consistent shopping experience, including access to rich content, ability to buy ancillary products and services and to be recognized and receive personalized offers, wherever they shop for Saudia products, especially from the Travel Agents and Online Travel Agency channels.
