Cathay Pacific and Amadeus take NDC to next level

Cathay Pacific has “deepened its commitment” to NDC by announcing plans to offer a range of content on the Amadeus Travel Platform.

The roll-out will start in early 2022 in selected markets and then gradually expand globally.

Cathay’s new NDC offers will include content such as seat selection, fare families, and special fares, plus critical functionalities such as ticketing exchange and refunds.  

The announcement builds on Cathay’s existing distribution strategy underpinned by the its use of Amadeus Altéa NDC. 

Martin Xu, General Manager, Sales & Distribution Cathay Pacific, said: “We believe NDC is a major driver in the future of airline content distribution and will be key in helping us reach new customers.

“In Amadeus, we have found a leading partner to collaborate with in our roll-out of NDC as we seek to create more personalised offers. This will be more important than ever as the aviation industry recovers.”  

In addition, Amadeus’ flagship solution for corporations, Amadeus cytric Travel & Expense, will be able to process Cathay’s bookings via NDC in 2022.
