We are pleased to announce that Finnair (AY) and Sabre plan to make the airline’s NDC content available through the Sabre travel marketplace later this year.
Finnair plans to activate global markets in phases, and we will share more detail about market activations closer to launch. Sabre-connected agencies and developer partners will be able to access Finnair’s NDC content using the Sabre Offer and Order APIs, agency point of sale solution, Sabre Red 360, and online booking tool, GetThere.
We’re particularly excited about our implementation work. As a long-standing partner of our Beyond NDC program, Finnair has been collaborating with Sabre on the distribution of its NDC content for some time. Earlier this year, Sabre and Finnair successfully completed an NDC pilot with select agencies in Finland and Denmark. The integration with the Sabre marketplace will enable Finnair to distribute its NDC content consistently and efficiently to third party travel sellers. The Sabre NDC capabilities support well-established agency operational workflows. Finnair joins other airlines, including Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Qatar Airways, that already make their NDC content available through Sabre and are advancing the adoption of offer and order-based travel retailing.
