FCM Travel: Distribution will be one of the biggest factors influencing corporate travel in 2019

    FCM Travel global MD Marcus Eklund, via Amadeus‘ official blog, stated (14-May-2019) one of the biggest factors influencing corporate travel in 2019 will be distribution, as IATA New Distribution Capability (NDC) content “becomes more of a reality”. Mr Eklund said FCM’s goal has been to “balance the short term priorities of NDC with building a long term sustainable booking solution with our technology partners”. CM Travel Solutions will be testing an enhanced user interface of Amadeus’ NDC enabled Selling Platform Connect, which is an “an important milestone as we move closer to NDC industrialisation and the global deployment of Amadeus’ NDC enabled solutions to digitalise the travel industry”. FCM is in partnership with Amadeus, working as a driver customer of NDC-X programme, which was formed to drive the industrialisation of NDC and ensure its success for all travel players.
