Inqbaytor celebrates a remarkable achievement as Ticket Gadget, Sri Lanka’s largest online travel consolidator super app for travel companies, corporate travel managers and more, recently became the first platform in the country to receive Singapore Airlines KrisConnect Direct NDC API certification. This accomplishment marks a significant leap forward in the travel industry’s evolution, demonstrating Inqbaytor’s commitment to providing users with enhanced, personalized experiences.
Dr. Harshani Perera, Chief Executive Officer of Inqbaytor said “We are thrilled to achieve this significant milestone, as it reaffirms Inqbaytor’s unwavering commitment to innovation and availing next generation travel retail technology for users. We’ve always been at the forefront of embracing new technology, and we are excited about this new partnership between Ticket Gadget and Singapore Airlines. It’s a remarkable opportunity for our users to enjoy competitive and exclusive fares and content, showcasing our dedication to delivering an exceptional travel retail experience.”
NDC, which stands for New Distribution Capability, represents a transformative shift in the travel industry, championed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). It introduces an innovative XML-based data transmission standard, the NDC Standard, to revolutionize communication between airlines and travel agents. This evolution is poised to reshape how air products are retailed to end consumers.
With the integration of the KrisConnect Direct NDC API, Ticket Gadget users now have access to an array of tailored offerings for fares, ancillaries, and bundles. These offerings are crafted meticulously to meet the unique needs and preferences of travelers. As a result, users can expect a more personalized and seamless booking experience that caters specifically to their desires.
Zachary Liew, General Manager Sri Lanka of Singapore Airlines, said: “We are pleased to have API connection with Inqbaytor for distribution of our NDC content. NDC provides access to our full suite of fares, products and offers, including exclusive content. This will allow further personalisation of offers for our joint customers.”
The benefits of this certification extend beyond personalization. Ticket Gadget users will also enjoy an expanded variety of content and more competitive fare offerings, all available exclusively through the NDC channel. This ensures that Ticket Gadget users have access to the most up-to-date and cost-effective options when planning travel journeys.
Singapore Airlines’ KrisConnect Direct NDC API certification opens up a world of possibilities for Ticket Gadget users. It represents a significant step forward in creating a travel booking experience that is not just convenient but also highly personalized. This certification underscores Inqbaytor’s commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions that elevate the travel experience for all.
