Accelya and Lufthansa Group extend NDC agreement

Accelya has signed a long-term New Distribution Capability (NDC) extension with Lufthansa Group.

The agreement will see Accelya continuing to enable NDC at scale for six of the group’s top airlines, including Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS, Discover Airlines and Air Dolomiti.

Accelya’s NDC technologies allow these airlines to “take control of their retailing, modernise their distribution, personalise offers and grow ancillary sales without using restrictive, legacy technology that often inhibits innovation and customer experience”.

Frank Naeve, SVP Global Markets & Stations at Lufthansa Group, said: “We remain wholly committed to our NDC journey and continue to aim for significant growth in the NDC channel in the coming years.

“This requires an approach which provides industrial scalability and offers highly flexible and modular components. Accelya, with its deep understanding of the airline industry combined with proven NDC adoption, is a strong partner for the Lufthansa Groups’ next level expansion phase.”
