Explore how Sabre is bringing NDC to life with Qantas
Since March 2021, travel retailers have been able to shop, book and service NDC offers from Qantas through the Sabre marketplace. We’re excited to continue our work together, enabling new capabilities and expanding to new markets–most recently in the United States, the United Kingdom and South Africa. Qantas Channel-participating agencies can shop by frequent flier number for single and multi-passenger itineraries, as well as price, book, pay, cancel, void, refund and exchange NDC bookings from the airline.
As of August 2023, Sabre-connected agencies can now cancel a Qantas NDC itinerary and retain the ticket for future use. If you’ve already activated Qantas NDC through Sabre, you’ll automatically gain access to this capability. You can begin placing Qantas NDC orders today:
