United Airlines NDC-enabled content is now available in the Sabre GDS.
Agencies that have activated NDC for United Airlines with Sabre can book and service itineraries through the Sabre Red 360 platform as well as via Sabre’s Offer and Order APIs and its online booking tool, GetThere.
Through Sabre, United will offer continuous pricing content that isn’t available to travel advisors shopping United via legacy Edifact technology. Using continuous pricing, airlines can construct a wide variety of offers at the time of a search query, rather than having to rely on fares that have been filed with ATPCO using the traditional letter-based fare-filing system. In its Tuesday announcement, Sabre said United’s lowest third-party offer will be generated with continuous pricing.
Via NDC, Sabre-connected travel advisors will also have access to more descriptive information on United’s flight offers, Sabre said. In addition, seat selection will be enabled in the booking path.
United is the tenth airline with which Sabre has completed NDC integration.
United NDC content is already available in the Amadeus GDS. Travelport is also on the brink of rolling out United NDC content, chief product and technology officer Tom Kershaw wrote in March 21 blog post.
