Lufthansa Group’s NDC content goes live on AfroAtlas Platform
AfroAtlas, the first travel aggregator in Eastern and Central Africa, has launched a new distribution capability (NDC) connection through a partnership with Lufthansa Group’s passenger airlines – Lufthansa, Swiss, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings. As a participant in Lufthansa’s NDC Partner Program, AfroAtlas will get access to the airlines’ branded fares, bundles, ancillary product offerings and price offers.
Speaking on the launching ceremony, Melford Ndungu from the Lufthansa Group highlighted that NDC enhances communication between airlines and travel agents as well as other market players and helps airlines to control their offer to facilitate product differentiation, time-to-market, access to full and rich travel content.
Speaking at the launching event, Ms Agnes Mucuha, CEO of Kenya Association of Travel Agents (KATA) and Mr. Anthony Ochieng, CEO of Tour Operators Society of Kenya (TOSK), highlighted the significance of this partnership for the local travel and tour operators that need a technology solution that can understand their priorities.
“We are very happy to launch Lufthansa Group NDC for the Eastern Africa market. This is part of our continuous efforts to offer latest technologies to our travel partners in Africa and beyond,” said Ahmed Ugas, CEO of AfroAtlas.
