TravelBank Enables Optimized Airline Flight Booking Content on American Airlines and United Airlines
New Distribution Capability (NDC) will provide more real-time airfares and efficient, personalized services for business travelers.
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., – June 22, 2023 – Today, TravelBank went live with the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) New Distribution Capability (NDC) with two of the largest airlines in the world, American Airlines and United Airlines. With more real-time airfares, TravelBank will provide business travelers an easier shopping, booking and travel experience.
New Distribution Capability NDC was designed to update the flight shopping and booking experience for the benefit of the industry and end users such as TravelBank customers. Additionally, NDC reflects the wider variety of price points and services available to travelers today in real time, so that these fares have parity with what is found on the airline’s website. This is known as “continuous pricing” in the travel industry and seen as a more modern approach to pricing in corporate travel.
“Making business travel easier is always our goal. We’re excited to launch this program with American and United so that the overall user experience for our customers is seamless,” said Duke Chung, co-founder and CEO, TravelBank.
Specific to the user experience in the TravelBank app, continuous pricing means TravelBank customers gain access to pricing that matches that of American and United’s pricing in real time. TravelBank users can take advantage of these new booking features effective immediately.
With the NDC integration, TravelBank is able to provide a much more personalized and efficient booking experience for travelers.
