The Lufthansa Group has signed a multi-year agreement with Travix to connect the Amsterdam-based online travel agency to its NDC Offer and Order Management System.
Lufthansa says the agreement is part of its NDC Partner Programme and will provide Travix customers with content from Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa and Swiss. The group claims these will be displayed with “competitive fares and ancillaries only available via NDC-based distribution channels”.
The group says the NDC channel provides cheaper offerings and increased transparency of what is included in the fares.
John Mangelaars, CEO of Travix International BV, commented: “This is a unique opportunity to modernise the air travel distribution towards a customer centric experience. Travix was a key driver and early adopter to show the Lufthansa Group’s customised fare bundles and to display its rich content. Based on the Lufthansa Group NDC Offer and Order Management System, both partners follow their path to innovate and manifest their leading role in an evolving marketplace.”
