- ACCELERATING NDCWhile many airlines had lofty ambitions, most would admit that they have faced challenges in growing their distribution volumes via the New Distribution Capability (NDC) as quickly as they would have liked. An aspect that is increasingly important is the role of NDC aggregators, the bridge between supply (airlines) and demand (sellers). Travel in Motion’s (TiM) founding partner Daniel Friedli took a deeper look into the value added by NDC aggregators and general challenges to NDC adoption. The paper should help airlines, aggregators, sellers and NDC solution vendors address these issues and find solutions at an early stage of the project and implementation. The time and efforts to research and write such a paper are made possible through sponsorship. In this instance, we thank our sponsor Datalex for the support.
- 1% For The Future – Our Support For WeCare4Corporate Social Responsibility is a fundamental part of how we at Travel in Motion (TiM) work. We launched our “1% For The Future” programme in 2018 and since then we have donated 1% of our revenues to charity each quarter. This year, we figured it was time to get a better understanding of what is done with our donations. Therefore, our partner Andrea Riesen interviewed Natalie Hungerbühler, president and co-founder of WeCare4, a Swiss based charity we recently supported. Please take a moment of your time to watch the interview and see the difference this organization makes to students in Kenya. You will get insight into how just a little can help a lot.
- PSS: Not an easy choiceSwiss-based regional carrier Helvetic Airways decided to replace its self-built inhouse PSS. The aim was to find one of the most innovative, user-friendly and easy to operate PSS systems. To achieve this, Helvetic engaged with TiM to run a PSS replacement project covering all the necessary steps, from summarising Helvetic’s business requirements, running a tender, facilitating vendor sessions, supporting the choice of the final supplier and finalising the vendor contracts. It was a very interesting experience to successfully deliver such a project during COVID times.
