Oman Air is working with TPConnects to integrate Oman Air NDC API within its Travel Aggregator Platform.
This new alliance will allow IATA and non-IATA travel agents to access their own contracted global distribution system (GDS), along with Oman Air NDC Direct Connect, to shop, book and manage travel content from all airlines, hotel suppliers and car rental brands from a single screen. With ZERO initial investment, and on a per passenger transaction fee-based model, agents will get their own website with a booking engine, a B2B platform for sub agents and their own staff, a mobile application and a corporate booking tool.
Vice president revenue optimisation and pricing, Oman Air, Umesh Chhiber enthused: “Enhancing our strategic partnership with TPConnects is an important step for the quick adoption of Oman Air NDC enabled distribution. Our technology partner TPConnects has a deep understanding of personalised offer creation and the distribution requirement of Oman Air, and was also instrumental in implementing NDC Offer and Order Management at Oman Air. We’re committed to partnering with TPConnects and other travel industry leaders to bring NDC benefits to our customers.”
TPConnects is the only IATA NDC DUAL Level three Certified IT Provider and Travel Aggregator to acquire the IATA Financial Gateway (IFG) Solution Provider certification in the Middle East and North Africa. TPConnects is an expert in next generation travel retailing with air and non-air ancillaries, NDC Offer and Order Management with customer-centric business rules and NDC enabled Distribution.
