Sabre Corporation, a software and technology company that powers the global travel industry, has received the NDC Level 4 certification as an aggregator by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
Achieved in collaboration with travel agency Flight Centre Travel Group and an airline partner, Sabre is now Level 4 certified as an aggregator under IATA’s NDC Certification Program. The achievement will help Sabre in its aim to increase access to leading content for all participants in the travel value chain and constitutes one of many enabling elements of the Sabre platform.
The certification also confirms Sabre’s technical ability to support a set of criteria related to full offer and order management capabilities.
Furthermore, it demonstrates additional progress for Sabre in going beyond the NDC standards – to facilitate omnichannel retailing and distribution of intelligent airline offers and develop scalable capabilities for travel intermediaries.

Meanwhile, Belavia – Belarusian Airlines recently became the first carrier globally to achieve IATA’s Level 3 certification using Sabre’s airline IT NDC capabilities. A Sabre passenger service system (PSS) customer, Belavia also launched Sabre’s base level NDC capabilities across its network.
Headquartered in Minsk, Belavia serves a network of routes between European cities and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), as well as several Middle East destinations, making it an important provider of air travel in Central and Eastern Europe.
