In addition, our Uniglobe Travel Experts will continue to offer their unrivalled personal support, with which we have distinguished ourselves for almost 40 years. This client centric focus is summarized in our new motto – Travel Well. With this message, Uniglobe Travel positions itself as The Travel Partner for SME companies.

Amadeus keeps up the pace in further developing its NDC [X] program to drive the industrialization of NDC.
Amadeus NDC [X] is a dedicated program, created to accelerate the deployment and adoption of the new technology standard across the industry.
The aggregation of any type of content in the Amadeus Travel Platform, like air, hotel, car, destination and even more in the future, is the major development happening alongside the program. It means that all content coming from multiple sources (EDIFACT, NDC, or other APIs) are available on one unique platform - the Amadeus Travel Platform. Any content, from any source, through any channel!
The NDC [X] program is fed by the input of leading players in the travel industry to ensure the program meets the expectation of all travel players. UNIGLOBE Travel in The Netherlands is happy to support the NDC [X] program.
UNIGLOBE Travel Holland is a network of Travel entrepreneurs, targeting small & medium sized enterprises since more than 35 years.
According to Cees Klinkenberg, Director and regional president of UNIGLOBE Travel Holland: “Our travel sellers are constantly searching to deliver more value to their Corporate Travelers in SME. Combined with our unique personalized service, it is key to have access to the widest available and relevant content, regardless of which source it is coming from. Ease of search, comparison and booking are fundamental for our customer service. This is why we welcome NDC and support the Amadeus NDC [X] program.”
Kurt Van der biesen, Head for Benelux of Business Travel, Amadeus adds: “As mentioned above, one of the major developments in the coming year will be the continued evolution of the Amadeus Travel Platform which brings together airline, hotel, alternative lodging, rail, ground transportation and in-destination content all in one place. This will enable travel sellers to search, compare and book NDC content together with the content from any other source, all in a fully integrated manner and within the same workflow. As NDC aims at delivering new benefits for the entire travel industry, we work closely together with airlines & travel sellers around the world to drive NDC forward. I am therefore very pleased to announce the support of Uniglobe Travel Holland in the NDC [X] program.”
