The new Airline Distribution

New Distribution Capability (NDC) is a travel industry-supported program launched by IATA for the development and market adoption of a new, XML-based data transmission standard.

ONE Order aims to optimize the entire process chain – by eliminating limiting ticket-related processes and formats as well as preventing data duplication. This will lead to reduced costs for data integration and synchronization. ONE Order allows uniform communication with all service providers including ticketless carriers and non-air service providers – for an almost unlimited product portfolio.

With the integration of NDC and ONE Order into its system solutions, ISO offers you the benefit of the new IATA approach.

In cooperation with IATA we have conducted two ONE Order pilots to determine whether ONE Order can support the accounting processes of our airline customers for different business models:

  • for our existing Revenue Accounting System
  • as a direct interface between the Order Management System (OMS) and Financial Accounting (ERP) – in partnership with Condor

As a strategic partner of IATA, ISO is a member of the relevant IATA committees, task forces and working groups – thus helping to shape these future standards. Moreover, ISO is NDC Capable Level 3 for Offer & Order Management and is actively involved in IATA’s ONE Order Taskforce (OOTF) as a “Supporting Organization”.
