3:15pm - 3:35pm Keynote: “New Distribution Capability: opportunity or threat for LCCs?”
Thursday Mar 1 - Grand Ballroom
New distribution models and IATA NDC specifically have been the topic of conversation for a number of years now, but have largely been seen as the domain of the Full Service airlines. However the standard is not limited to this airline model or to IATA members, so why should Low Cost Carriers care about these developments in the industry? This keynote will explore how these development present both opportunities and threats for LCCs as they compete with each other and FSCs and how they present unique opportunities for new forms of industry cooperation.
