Sabre achieves NDC Level 3 capability

Sabre Corporation has been granted Level 3 NDC certification as an IT provider by IATA.

The technology provider achieved Level 2 less than two months ago. Level 3 certification indicates that Sabre is now positioned to fulfil and service personalised offers throughout the entire process in both direct and indirect channels.

A major component of this includes verifying offer integrity and ensuring that the order management system can accurately enforce orders based on the rules of the original offer. Sabre says its position within the industry allows it to leverage data from a variety of sources.

The company says it will actively work to deploy NDC capabilities in the coming months through close collaboration with its customers.

Dave Shirk, president of Sabre Airline Solutions, said: “This represents significant progress in our NDC-enabled airline retailing and product distribution strategy and demonstrates how we impact every step of the order and fulfilment process. But Level 3 capability is just one step in the process of constant innovation and adaptation to a changing marketplace, and now we are focused on bringing these new capabilities to market as part of our drive to achieving an end-to-end product and services distribution solution.”

Sabre is also certified as an NDC Level 1 aggregator and plans to achieve Level 3 in 2018.
