Cytric’s online booking tool provides access to Air France-KLM NDC content thanks to CWT

Through Amadeus’ Cytric corporate travel and expense booking platform, CWT has begun giving its worldwide clients access to NDC content from Air France-KLM. Travellers looking to search and book NDC-enabled content and continuous pricing offers from Air France-KLM can do so without any difficulty through Cytric by Amadeus as part of CWT’s ongoing commitment to develop scalable, functional solutions for corporate travel programmes to access NDC content through preferred channels.

This comes after the start of a pilot programme last year in which CWT travel advisors used the Amadeus Travel Platform to book Air France-KLM NDC flights for a small group of customers.

“The ability to offer NDC content through an online booking channel is a major step forward in our ambition to create an omni-channel experience for our customers,” said Erik Magnuson, CWT’s Vice President of Product Management, Travel Content & Connectivity. This was made possible by our tight cooperation and relationship with Amadeus and Air France-KLM, and it builds on the achievements of our ongoing joint efforts.

“We’re very happy to see the joint effort of CWT, Air France-KLM, and Amadeus come to fruition, and to bring the airline’s NDC-sourced content to CWT’s corporate travellers through Cytric by Amadeus in an effective and comprehensive manner,” said Ludo Verheggen, Director Air Distribution Growth, Amadeus. It has been a great example of all parties involved working together to share needs and discover solutions in order to advance NDC and speed up contemporary retailing.

NDC is becoming more significant in Air France-KLM’s distribution strategy, according to distribution vice president Stephane Ormand. Our teams are collaborating closely with CWT and Amadeus to adapt our NDC technology to business travel requirements after placing a lot of emphasis on adoption in the leisure sector.

We’re happy to begin a new online pilot phase after an earlier this year successful offline proof of concept phase. Through specific corporate bundles, CWT’s key corporate customers will now gain access to our exclusive NDC content, which includes continuous pricing, ancillaries, and customisation. Stephen came to an end.

In order to create scalable solutions for NDC-sourced content through the major international content aggregators, CWT has been closely collaborating with its airline and technology partners. This most recent pilot programme marks another significant turning point for the sector and signals the coming later this year of other NDC-only services like seat packages and sustainable aviation fuel solutions.
