Introducing Oryx Connect

Our New Distribution Capability (NDC) programme.

Qatar Airways is extending its five-star experience to trade partners with the launch of our New Distribution Capability (NDC) programme, Oryx Connect.  

Qatar Airways is enhancing and adding more flexibility to its NDC programme, Oryx Connect by providing more rich content and more accessibility via multiple aggregator platforms including Amadeus and Sabre.

Oryx Connect will offer next-level retailing for our joint customers. It will enable trade partners to access more rich content including Fare Families and a selection of ancillary services, such as baggage and seats selection

How to get started with Oryx Connect

We welcome all trade partners to join Oryx Connect to benefit from full offer and order management capabilities from booking, servicing, ticketing and payment. This includes intuitive display of Qatar Airways’ Classic, Convenience, Comfort and Elite fares, helping them deliver the most suitable product offering to customers. They will also have access to a variety of ancillary products and service offerings, such as selecting Preferred Seats and adding Special Service Requests.  Payment options include industry-standard settlement methods, such as BSP cash and card, and IATA EasyPay.

The NDC Standard

New Distribution Capability (NDC) is a travel industry-supported transmission standard launched by IATA for the development and market adoption of a XML-based data transmission, that will address the limitations of the current distribution technology.


The NDC Standard enhances the capability of communications between airlines and travel agents and enables the travel industry to transform the way air products are retailed to corporations, leisure and business travelers.
