During the last 2-3 years many things have been written and said about NDC.
Some people are looking forward to NDC and some are talking against NDC. What is what?
A lot of questions have been asked, but not all have been answered.
We believe in an open dialog, as this is the best way to make things happen.
We will answer a few NDC questions below:

A: You can use your current travel account number or get a “sub-number” for your NDC bookings. All bookings will be settled on the same statement and data sent to your expense management system as usual.
