Air Cairo adopts TPConnects’ advanced NDC solution

Air Cairo has become the latest MENA-based airline to adopt TPConnects’ IATA New Distribution Capability (NDC) and One Order- certified Offer and Order Management Solution (OfrMS) along with NDC agency portal and NDC-based internet booking engine for holiday bookings and mobile applications.

Air Cairo is the first Egyptian airline to receive NDC Level 4 Certification from IATA - the initiative that provides airlines the flexibility and the capability to innovate and differentiate their services.

TPConnects is also providing the carrier with an airlines agent platform (NDC Agency Portal), directly integrated to Air Cairo’s Passenger Service System and IATA Financial Gateway (IFG) that will enable travel trade (both IATA accredited and non-IATA travel agents) to book air tickets, ancillaries and related services with the NDC-certified airline.

The Mobile App and Holidays Website being built by TPConnects for Air Cairo will be integrated with flights as well as air and non-air ancillaries. Travel trade partners will also be able to sell non-air products like hotel accommodation through the NDC Agency Portal in the near future, thus transitioning to a customer-centric retailer.

TPConnects is the only IATA DUAL Level 4 certified IT provider and travel aggregator and the first IT provider to receive the IFG Solution Provider certification in the MENA region. The firm specialises in next-generation travel retailing with air and non-air ancillaries, NDC Offer & Order Management with customer-centric business rules and NDC-enabled distribution.

Air Cairo CEO Hussein Sherif said: “As a low-fare airline, it was vital for our business’ long-term growth plans to introduce cutting-edge technologies based on IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) and One Order standard.”

“TPConnects’ advanced Customer Centric OfrMS and NDC Agency Portal will enable our customers to package, price and bundle air tickets along with air and non-air ancillaries as well as third-party products, tapping into the greater flexibility provided by IATA’s NDC standard.

'As the world is moving slowly towards a post-Covid-19 era, we want to provide more choices for our IATA and non-IATA travel agents to meet their customer demand through our participation in NDCMarketplace.com by TPConnects.”
