Q4 2020/Q1 2021
Last Updated 09-10-2020
These are the planned capabilities for Q4 2020 and Q1 2021. Roadmap planning is ongoing.
BA will enable automatic payments of the correct commission values for eligible agents in the US market (go live 13th oct)
BA will be introducing a new PADIS code, 70G to enable TMCs to uniquely shop for and identify corporate fares. This will be a new way for customers to request corporate fares and will be available in Short Sell of the BA 17.2 APIs only.
BA will be adding the functionality for agents to request change/cancel penalties to be returned in the AirShopping RS in a code readable format. This will allow agents to display this information to end customers at the shopping stage. This will be requested by sending an additional PADIS code in the shopping request, 722
3D Secure 2 (3DS2) is the new Seller initiated authentication protocol for online card payments. 3DS2 is designed to improve upon 3DS1 by addressing the old protocol's pain points, and delivering a much smoother and integrated user experience. We are adopting this into NDC as a legal mandatory requirement. The time extension for this to be delivered is until 31 December 2020 for all European companies.
BA will enable automated testing for OrderChangeNotification messages in the Pre-Live environment, including messages for return and part flown itineraries. Messages will be provided for cancellations and reaccomodations. These scenarios can already be manually supported by raising a NDC Helpdesk request
