Trevolution Group, which manages AsapTickets, Skylux Travel, Dreamport and other travel brands, is set to implement New Distribution Capability (NDC) in its airline ticket distribution this month. Partnering with NDC aggregator AirGateway, by the end of September Trevolution Group will offer its customers instant access to customized travel content related to a range of airlines.
NDC is an improved industry standard, developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), to facilitate a direct exchange of data between the leading industry players, thus transforming the way air products are retailed to corporations, leisure and business travelers. Meanwhile, NDC aggregator refers to a third-party technology provider that serves as a centralized platform between airlines and travel agencies to offer instant connections to multiple airlines’ NDC contents, such as flight inventory, supplementary services and pricing, including those options that may not be available via traditional distribution channels.
Since NDC offers a transparent, personalized shopping experience, Trevolution Group’s travel brands can leverage the data to better understand traveler preferences. They can offer tailor-made travel packages based on factors including customers’ travel history and airline loyalty details, making the booking experience more convenient and effortless. The NDC technology also allows airlines to return these personalized offers, apply discounts based on loyalty status or provide alternative payment options such as miles.
While the traditionally used global distribution system (GDS) model only permits airlines to display prices and schedules, the NDC standard provides real-time information. As Trevolution Group moves forward with the new integration, a full range of NDC services will be introduced and offered to its customers in the upcoming months. As a result, air travelers will benefit from real-time updates and seamless integration to make instant alterations to their bookings, from seat upgrades to itinerary changes, without having to wait for confirmation from the airline. Additionally, the implementation of NDC will provide instant flight updates, ensuring that customers are always aware of any changes to their travel plans. Airlines will thus send passengers direct alerts about flight delays or gate changes, offer upgrade options, or notify customers about in-flight services and amenities.
Trevolution Group incorporates the travel businesses of the Dyninno Group of companies, which provides products and services in the finance, travel and entertainment sectors. Over 730,000 airline tickets and vacation packages were sold by Trevolution Group in 2022, which makes it the fifth-largest travel consolidator in the United States.
