How do I access Air Canada NDC content?
Air Canada offers NDC connectivity solutions based on your business model and needs. Third-parties, agencies and online booking tools can access Air Canada content by connecting directly to the Air Canada NDC API or by working with a variety of Air Canada NDC certified technology partners.
Agencies will soon have access to our NDC content through AC Connex – our free, web-based tool that is currently in a pilot testing phase.
What is an API?
An API (Application Programming Interface) is a software that allows two applications to talk to each other. In other words, an API is the messenger that delivers your request to the provider that you're requesting it from
and then delivers the response back to you.
Who can use Air Canada’s NDC API?
The Air Canada NDC API is open to agencies, any third-party intermediaries or IT providers. The NDC API enables the travel industry to transform the way Air Canada’s products are retailed to corporations, leisure, and business
travellers, by offering an improved shopping experience.
What is AC Connex?
AC Connex is our free, web-based intuitive booking tool designed for travel agencies to give access to Air Canada’s enhanced content and a whole host of functionality, features and capabilities for your business.
The desktop is currently in a pilot testing phase. We will communicate the launch date in our 2023 plans.
What is the turnaround time to connect?
The timeframe to implement our NDC content into your booking tool using the Air Canada NDC API or with the help of one of our certified technology partners will vary with each provider.
