IATA has announced further growth in the number of airlines signing up to its NDC scheme.
The trade body named nine new airlines participating in pilots or testing the new system, bringing the total number up to 24.
The new airlines include Avianca, China Southern Airlines, Lufthansa, Qantas and Qatar.
“We welcome the participation of these airlines as well as their travel agent and technology partners in helping to test and implement the NDC standard,” said IATA CEO Tony Tyler.
“NDC will modernise the way that airline products are presented through travel agents as well as help to promote efficiency and innovation.
“With NDC, travellers shopping through agencies will be able to compare the full product offering—tailored to their specific requirements,” Tyler added.
IATA also announced the launch of the NDC microsite with information on how to get started with NDC, including links to instructional videos.
