The IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) program brings the potential to radically improve the airline-traveler relationship. By classifying consumers in the initial phases of the sales process across channels, airlines can create and offer more personalized products. Through direct and indirect channels, consumers will find it easier to purchase ancillaries such as priority boarding, onboard Wi-Fi, and access to airport lounges. They will enjoy access to personalized fare quotes, increased purchase transparency, and more.

Towards this, airlines will need to map customers’ buying behavior to their profiles. They will need to garner insights into the consumer journey.
