BSP NDC Risk Management Home

When a sale is made via NDC, an Airline is in control of the offer management, the order management and any financial document issued to fulffil the order.

Airlines have outsourced to IATA the responsibility to manage the IATA Agency programme in order to rely on a professional network of Agents in more than 180 countries and territories.

Airlines have also mandated that IATA manage the Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP) in order to facilitate and simplify the selling, reporting and remitting procedures of IATA Accredited Passenger Sales Agents.

In order to protect its sales with IATA Accredited Agents and avoid any unpaid amount on BSP sales, IATA have provided a suite of functionalities - BSP NDC Risk Management APIs - to Member Airlines.
