New Distribution Capability


Advocating on behalf of our corporate and agency partners while innovating within
the distribution ecosystem.

The New Standard

NDC sets the standard for creating
a single source of content that helps
to achieve a consistent offering
and expanded choice across channels.

“Delta is committed to maximizing NDC benefits while minimizing agency disruption.”


Sara Reid, Managing Director – Global Sales Innovation

Delta’s NDC Approach

Delta is investing in NDC-compliant tools to provide a common language regardless of channel. And we don’t add surcharges to bookings based on NDC compatibility which enables our partners to remain competitive.
