Sabre Corporation has released its first set of New Distribution Capability application program interfaces (API’s) with launch carrier United Airlines. Sabre’s Beyond NDC agency partners are using these capabilities to enable live NDC bookings and provide customers with a more robust shopping experience. This development, according to Sabre, is a significant step forward for the travel industry, because it advances a pan-industry vision and moves NDC closer to becoming an everyday reality for travelers, carriers, agencies, corporations and more. Sabre’s NDC solutions will allow United to offer new fare options and additional flight amenities for a more comprehensive shopping experience for customers who choose to book through Sabre. Sabre launched its NDC-enabled shopping, booking and fulfillment capability with United Airlines for flights across the airline’s global network.
