From 1 August 2019, the Qantas Distribution Platform (QDP) will be live across the globe. Over the past year you may have read or seen articles about the Qantas Channel and NDC, and have some questions about both of these. To help simplify this information, we’ve created a White Paper to help explain what the QDP and NDC are, and most importantly how you will benefit as a Corporate Traveller customer.
What is NDC?
NDC (New Distribution Capability) is a new, modernised data transmission standard, developed by IATA, that enables airlines to provide dynamic personalised offers and distribute products to market faster and with greater flexibility.
What is the QDP?
The QDP (Qantas Distribution Platform) is an NDC-enabled Application Programming Interface, offered by Qantas to approved technology partners, for distributing bespoke offers. The QDP enables travel agency partners such as Corporate Traveller to access content both through traditional distribution technology (GDS) as well as any content made available through the QDP.
