How Technology Partners can connect to the Qantas Distribution Platform

Qantas’ Approved Technology Partners (including Travel Agencies) can access Qantas Distribution Platform content by:

NDC

  • Connecting their own technology into our NDC XML API or
  • Connecting via an Approved Technology Partner

Connecting is entirely optional. Please note that Qantas Distribution Platform does not have a customer facing user interface.

Connecting via NDC XML API

New Technology Partners wishing to connect into our NDC XML API are required to sign a Qantas Distribution Platform Access Agreement^, prior to being granted access to our test environment.

For more information on the terms of this Agreement, and connecting to the Qantas Distribution Platform, please register interest and a Qantas Representative will be in touch to organise an introductory call.

Once a Qantas Distribution Platform Access Agreement is signed, our test environment will be made available for Approved Technology Partners to scope, develop and explore platform capability. Access to the test environment does not guarantee access to the Qantas Distribution Platform production environment or IATA NDC accreditation.

Any development costs associated with connecting to the Qantas Distribution Platform test environment, or to reach IATA NDC certification is to be borne solely by the Technology Partner.

Technology Partners interested in developing a connection to the Qantas Distribution Platform are also encouraged to register on IATA’s NDC Matchmaker as your NDC profile will allow us to better understand market access, specific business requirements and how we may be able to partner on the NDC journey.

Connecting via an Approved Technology Partner

Travel Agencies wishing to access content via the Qantas Distribution Platform must register for the Qantas Channel and nominate an Approved Technology Partner.
