Japan Airlines has entered into a distribution partnership that makes Amadeus the carrier’s recommended distribution partner for travel agents in Japan. The implementation of Amadeus Altéa NDC, said a statement, will help JAL improve retailing and servicing across all channels. JAL will integrate its NDC content into the Amadeus Travel Platform for distribution using Amadeus NDC Connect, a solution designed to make NDC content seamlessly available for travel sellers worldwide. For Amadeus travel sellers, this means that JAL’s NDC content will soon be available through the Amadeus Travel Platform through an NDC connectivity, ensuring operational continuity and access to a wide range of JAL’s content. Cyril Tetaz, executive vice president airlines for the Asia Pacific for Amadeus, said that by implementing Amadeus NDC Connect, Japan Airlines will be able to work in an “agile and simple manner to support its long-term digital innovation strategy to effectively distribute NDC.”
