TD breaking news – Qantas announces NDC distribution platform

Qantas Distribution Platform (QDP) offers XML API direct connection. 

Qantas has just unveiled a new technology platform which it says will enhance the retailing, booking and servicing capabilities for its trade partners, as well as deliver a more personalised experience for customers. 

QF chief customer officer Vanessa Hudson said the Qantas Distribution Platform will improve the functionality of indirect agent channels by more closely aligning them with what is available on, “making it easier for trade partners to sell Qantas products and provide more seamless customer service”.

The new Qantas platform has been certified to NDC Level 3, IATA’s highest certification. It will give trade partners access to richer content, such as images of cabins and meals and the ability to book ancillaries. It will also provide Qantas Frequent Flyer information and tier status at the point of sale.

Trade partners are able to access the QDP either via approved partner connections, or directly by developing a connection to Qantas’ NDC XML Application Program Interface, the carrier said.
