Festive Road: Fixing of plumbing within NDC industry is 'largely done'
Festive Road principal Mike Orchard, speaking at the CAPA New Zealand Aviation & Corporate Travel Summit, stated (16-Oct-2019) GDSs "heavily got on board" and invested with NDC two to three years ago. He noted there is expected to be high volume NDC bookings through GDS in 2020, with "serving capabilities" from 1Q/2Q2020. Mr Orchard also stated there is a "huge amount" of collaboration across the industry and "really good" preparedness, adding buyers should be reassured that there is a "huge amount" of work "going on with NDC". "The fixing of plumbing within the industry is largely done by now", he commented.
