Hitit has already been certified as NDC Level 4 IT Provider on multiple schemas; now it has just earned a new title as Level 4 NDC Certified Aggregator. The Level 4 NDC Certified Aggregator is a unique certification title that Hitit has been awarded thanks to its Crane Agent Portal Plus (Crane APP) solution. Hitit will now offer the highest new distribution capacity opportunities to travel agencies.
Hitit has earned Level 4 certification as an Aggregator under the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) certification program for New Distribution Capability standards. Hitit already holds NDC Level 4 Certification as IT Provider on 17.2 and 20.1 schemas, and thanks to the capabilities reflected in these certifications, Hitit's partner airlines are able to utilize the personalized shopping experience, content and pricing autonomy, rich content offers, ancillaries, discounts, and product differentiation. With Hitit's new capabilities, travel agents using Crane APP will be able to benefit from the vast possibilities offered by this new distribution capacity.
Nevra Onursal Karaagac, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Hitit, said: "The aviation industry, which due to the pandemic has fallen behind its growth trend by at least 3-4 years, needs to increase momentum again. At this point, industry players should take on the responsibilities, as such, Hitit is involved in every initiative that contributes to the development of the marketplace, and this is reflected even more in Hitit's goals during this pandemic. For this reason, we earned Level 4 certification as an Aggregator under the International Air Transport Association's certification program for New Distribution Capability standards. Therefore, our partner travel agencies, one of the most significant components of the industry, can also benefit from this new distribution capacity. We will continue to be at the forefront of development and innovation."
Yanik Hoyles, IATA’s Director Distribution, said: “In achieving NDC Level 4 certification as an aggregator, Hitit is helping to bring the world of airline industry retailing to its travel agency partners, giving them the tools to participate in this exciting transformation in the way air products are sold.”
