Amadeus has partnered with Finnair and Skyscanner to allow travellers purchasing Finnair flights from Skyscanner to complete their purchase without leaving the Skyscanner platform, offering a seamless process from search to booking.
Finnair is working with Amadeus to launch a new solution, Amadeus Altea NDC, which is based on IATA’s NDC (New Distribution Capability) XML-based messaging standard. Finnair is piloting the solution with Skyscanner, one of the world’s leading metasearch sites.
This new NDC API from Amadeus offers an additional distribution option for travel retailers to integrate Finnair’s flights, seats and ancillaries. It also adds to Amadeus’ existing assisted booking portfolio aimed at boosting conversion for airlines in the increasingly important meta channel.
