Air France-KLM is making its New Distribution Capability-based dynamic seat bundle product available through travel technology platform Atriis.
The bundle, which consists of a ticket fare combined with the best available seat reservation with the travellers’ Flying Blue loyalty status taken into consideration, will initially be available in the Netherlands and then “gradually” expanded to Atriis users globally.
Air France-KLM VP of distribution Stephane Ormand said: “This is the first step in extending our bundle offers with additional options to the customer, such as lounge access and wi-fi on board. Those offers will be only available via NDC.”
Travel management companies will also be able to service the bookings, as Atriis can feed them to mid- and back office systems, according to Atriis’ co-founder Omri Amsalem. This will allow users to see airline messages and schedule changes.
“Atriis has automated and simplified the process for both the traveller and the agent,” added Amsalem. “Our platform provides one place to efficiently service NDC content and fares. We see the NDC adoption growth in corporate travel increasing.”
