The Business of Travel

Welcome to GBTA's official podcast covering all things business travel!

Jul 31, 2023

New Distribution Capability (NDC) has been around for over a decade in the travel industry – but now the effort has accelerated. In a recent GBTA poll, 53% of business travel industry professionals said airlines are trying to roll out NDC too quickly. So where does the industry stand now on NDC and what’s next?

In this podcast, experts discuss their view on how NDC is impacting the industry ecosystem, how execution has been going - from readiness to uptake, what’s going well and what’s still a challenge, their NDC priorities for the coming months and where the industry might be a year from now.

Rita Visser, Director of Global Sourcing & GPO, Oracle, moderates the expert line up: Fred Fredericks, Senior Vice President / Chief Product Officer and head of Engineering at SAP Concur; Jeff Klee, CEO of AmTrav; and Graham Wareham, head of Airline Strategy and Partnerships at ATPCO.
