After Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines and Brussels Airlines, airberlin is the latest airline to jump in. As pilot airline, airberlin will take an active role in establishing our online marketplace as a superior, higher yield channel, and in defining the most appropriate business model for this channel.
Technically, this collaboration provides us with the opportunity to further demonstrate the power of our API aggregation platform as it will transform airberlin’s API into a NDC-capable API. By doing so, our online marketplace can easily interact with all our partner airlines, regardless of the standard (proprietary, OTA or NDC) based on which they have built their respective API.
“Partnering with flyiin will enable us to commercialise our entire product offering, including our growing range of ancillary services, without the limitations inherent to existing distribution channels… and without the need to overhaul our current API setup.”
Lars Denlew, Head of Business Development and Distribution
Welcome on-board airberlin. As fellow Berliners, we’re delighted to join forces and build an online marketplace that will be popular with airlines and travellers alike.
