What is Amadeus Selling Platform Connect? How can Travellers Earn Benefits from this?
Travel merchants can browse, purchase, pay for, and service airline travel offerings through an NDC connectivity using the cloud-based booking platform Amadeus Selling Platform Connect (SECO).
The ability to display and compare all airline flights and related services for any specific trip, whether derived through EDIFACT, NDC, or other APIs, on a single screen is a significant benefit for travel merchants. It is the first time that travel agents can access such a comprehensive selection of air content in one location, making it simpler for them to evaluate offers and assist their clients in locating the best deal.
All travel sellers place a high value on customer service. Hence this new NDC-enabled version of Selling Platform Connect also enables the servicing of NDC bookings. Flights booked through an NDC link can be changed or cancelled by travel agents. Amadeus customers worked closely with designers to develop and test these features and the new graphical user interface.
More than 400 travel agents joined the travel tech company’s webinar. This conference focused on how automation can scale a business with best-in-class tools that reduce costs, increase profits, and enhance efficiency. Some of Amadeus India’s offerings were also showcased during the webinar.
