Hahn Air, was granted NDC Certification Level 3 status under the NDC (New Distribution Capability) Certification Program provided by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). 

This status recognizes that Hahn Air uses Offer and Order management messages whose schemas are compliant with the standard NDC message schema, version 17.2. 

“We are very proud to announce this important milestone in our NDC journey”, says Christopher Allison, Head of NDC at Hahn Air. “We are well on track to make our Hahn Air flights, and the content of our partner airlines, available to travel sellers via NDC in 190 markets worldwide. In the coming months, we will connect additional agencies, aggregators and partner airlines to our platform and introduce new features such as more forms of payment, for example BSP and ARC, support for itinerary changes, and ancillary content such as additional baggage and seat reservations.”

“We congratulate Hahn Air on achieving NDC Level 3 Certification. Hahn Air joins the growing fold of airlines involved in launching a new era of retailing in which travelers have access to all of an airline’s products and services”, said Yanik Hoyles, IATA’s Director, Industry Distribution Programs.

The certification follows the launch of Hahn Air’s NDC platform announced in August 2019. The platform allows airlines of any business model to introduce NDC to their distribution mix and thereby extend their global customer base, while providing travel agencies worldwide with access to content via Hahn Air’s NDC APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). It also offers distribution opportunities for airlines that are already NDC-capable. 

Hahn Air’s NDC platform is powered by two IATA certified technology partners with vast experience in airline distribution: PROS provides shopping and pricing capability while 2e Systems is responsible for the platform’s overall development and deployment, including offer and order management. 2e Systems CTO, Andrew Hurst, said: “2e Systems is delighted to deepen the relationship with Hahn Air with our IATA certification. As a provider, 2e Systems is committed to continue supporting the evolution of NDC." Boyan Manev, Principal Product Strategy at PROS also commented “We are very pleased to see Hahn Air receive its NDC certification, and to see our scalable shopping solutions used to help yet another airline to achieve its distribution goals.”
