Trevolution Group, the global market leader operating Asaptickets Skyluxtravel, Dreamport and other travel brands, has announced implementing New Distribution Capabilities (NDC) in its airline ticket distribution as of September 2023. By partnering with AirGateway, a world-leading NDC aggregator, by the end of the month, Trevolution Group will offer its customers instant access to customized travel content of over 15 global airlines, including several major carriers such as Lufthansa Group, United Airlines, Emirates, Finnair, Air France-KLM, American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia and others.
As the travel industry continues to evolve and adapt to the needs of customers around the globe, NDC has recently emerged as an ultimate game-changer. It is an improved industry standard, developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), to facilitate a direct exchange of data between the leading industry players, thus transforming the way air products are retailed to corporations, leisure and business travelers. Meanwhile, NDC aggregator is essentially a third-party technology provider that serves as a centralized platform between airlines and travel agencies to provide instant connections to multiple airlines’ NDC contents, such as flight inventory, supplementary services, and pricing, including those options that may not be available through traditional distribution channels.
Another advantage of introducing NDC is the ability to offer a transparent shopping experience with customized offers and personalization. Thus, Trevolution Group travel brands can now leverage the data to better understand traveler preferences and offer tailored travel packages that are unique to each customer based on their travel history, preferences, behavior, and airline loyalty details, making the booking experience more convenient and effortless. Likewise, the NDC technology allows airlines to return these personalized offers, apply discounts based on loyalty status, or provide alternative payment options such as miles.
While the traditionally used global distribution system (GDS) model only permits airlines to display prices and schedules, the NDC standard provides real-time information. As Trevolution Group moves forward with the new integration, a full range of NDC services will be introduced and offered to its customers in the upcoming months. As a result, air travelers will benefit from real-time updates and seamless integration to make instant alterations to their bookings, from seat upgrades to itinerary changes, without having to wait for confirmation from the airline. Additionally, the implementation of NDC will provide instant flight updates, ensuring that customers are always aware of any changes to their travel plans. Airlines will thus send passengers direct alerts about flight delays or gate changes, offer upgrade options, or notify customers about in-flight services and amenities.
“After signing the partnership agreement with AirGateway, Trevolution Group travel brands can get quick and easy access to full range of fares and ancillary products from multiple airlines at once with just a single integration. This means that we are able to provide our customers the very best flight options that suit their preferences and budget, regardless of where in the world they are flying to. By the end of the year, we expect to sell over 20 thousand airline tickets via NDC, while during 2024 our goal is to reach 150 thousand ticket sales. And although it requires significant infrastructure investment, we are ready to invest in the future,” Peter Vazan, EVP of Industry Relations at Trevolution Group comments.
Trevolution Group incorporates the travel businesses of the Dyninno Group of companies, which provides products and services in the finance, travel, and entertainment sectors. Trevolution Group has established itself as the market leader in the travel business, specializing in the visiting friends and relatives’ segment. Over 730,000 airline tickets and vacation packages were sold by Trevolution Group in 2022, which makes it the fifth-largest travel consolidator in the US.
