Sabre Corporation is launching NDC content in GetThere and the new capabilities will allow corporate travel managers to offer more flexibility and choice to their travellers.
Business travellers can now select policy-compliant NDC offers in addition to traditional content, as well as add hotel and ground transportation elements in a unified shopping flow.
Corporate travel agents also have the ability to fulfill, ticket and service NDC bookings through point-of-sale solution, Sabre Red 360.
Sabre points out that as the blending of in-person and virtual workforces accelerates and companies define new travel priorities, NDC supports the creation of more travel options tailored to a company’s needs. NDC expands corporations’ access to innovative, policy-compliant content and strengthens traveler confidence by supporting the sharing of more information, such as health and travel policy guidelines.
Saunvit Pandya, senior director, product management, Sabre Travel Solutions in charge of customer touchpoints, said that: “The availability of NDC through GetThere demonstrates our commitment to broadening access to leading content for our customers, no matter how they want to connect to us: through APIs, through Sabre Red 360, and now through GetThere. Our customers’ needs are evolving and activating NDC in GetThere gives more flexibility to navigate the new normal.”
Kathy Morgan, vice president of channel delivery, Sabre Travel Solutions, noted that: “As foundational NDC workflows are completed, the industry discussion turns increasingly toward airline retailing and demonstrating value to corporations. Activating NDC content in GetThere indicates Sabre’s commitment to equipping customers with products ready to support evolving marketplace dynamics.”
