American Express Global Business Travel to join Amadeus NDC-X programme

    Amadeus announced (08-Aug-2018) American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) will join the NDC-X programme to help pilot Amadeus’ new IATA New Distribution Capability (NDC) enabled solution. American Express GBT will use Amadeus’ NDC enabled solution to test and familiarise itself with the new NDC flow of ‘shop, order, pay’. This will help GBT prepare to implement the industrialised version of the solution, which will include servicing capabilities, in 2019. American Express GBT will have access to NDC content in addition to Amadeus’ travel content available in the global distribution system.
