Oman Air has unveiled a significant enhancement to its distribution capabilities, offering convenience and increased choice for booking.

Partnering with Accelya, provider of software and technology solutions, the airline has introduced a tool that will enable its trade partners to manage their customers’ travel needs.

Part of the airline’s ambitious retail transformation programme, the upgrade leverages the latest IATA New Distribution Capability (NDC) technology, representing a substantial advancement from the previous booking tools available to travel agents.

Con Korfiatis, Chief Executive Officer of Oman Air commented: “NDC stands as a pivotal tool, empowering us with enhanced flexibility and control over our distribution channels.

“Oman Air’s NDC journey has yielded significant growth in recent years and our partnership with Accelya marks an important milestone in this journey.”

“Not only does the new upgrade support us to streamline our customer experience and enable us to scale up and provide more robust services, it also represents a significant reduction in our distribution costs, paving the way for more efficient operations and revenue diversification.”

Sam Gilliland, Chief Executive Officer at Accelya, added “We are delighted that Oman Air has chosen Accelya to take control of its retailing future and set it on a path to Offer & Order transformation.

“More and more airlines, covering a range of scale and operating models, are choosing Accelya’s FLX Platform due to our track record of delivering fast, impactful results.

“Our partnership with Oman Air is an example of how Accelya is leading the market and bringing the benefits of our technology to customers across the travel industry.”
