Using IATA NDC standards, Qantas can distribute these offers through Approved Technology Partners, or even to your Travel Agency directly, for you to access. You can also access a suite of unique offers, previously only available through Qantas.com, that are now available on bookings made via Qantas Distribution Platform.
