IATA Airline Industry Retailing Symposium 2019 @ Bangkok

I’m very thankful to IATA for their invitation to participate in the “Challengers Panel” at the upcoming IATA Airline Industry Symposium happening in Bangkok from the 29th to 31st of October.

I will be very happy to engage in an interesting conversation about what’s happening in the airline distribution industry and how AirGateway, as one of the relevant new-entrants, is approaching this age of demonopolization.

The current status of NDC

A recently released report by IATA throws this representative graph on the adoption tempo of the NDC (New Distribution Capability) standard by the airlines.


Let’s hope 2016 makes this numbers small for the sake of airlines distribution modernization.

T-Hack Hamburg

I’ve been invited by Gene Quinn (CEO @ Tnooz) to participate as a judge in the first worldwide NDC-based Hackathon, thumb happening in Hamburg this upcoming weekend.


After spending some months learning on the Air industry and very particularly focused on the NDC (New Distrubution Capability) standard, I’m excited to see first early-stage ideas that the blooming technology can bring into an industry which is very in the mood to be revamped from it’s roots, as we have seen along this year.

The Hackathon will be continued along the week by the IATA WPS, where the resulting ideas from the THack will be for sure a hot topic in the event’s conversation.
