NDC is the foundation of the modern retailing journey for airlines as they look to ONE Order, and Accelya are proud to be leading the way.”
Recent long-term extensions announced with American Airlines, United and Qantas, further demonstrate Accelya’s leading position in the market for NDC enablement.
