The IATA NDC Hackathon

Welcome to the NDC Hackathon, a round-the-clock experience to enhance airline retailing. The NDC Hackathon comprises:

  • One week ideation phase to prepare your project around leisure & business travel
  • A 28 hour coding experience at École Polytechnique to work on your projects and pitch ideas to a team of industry experts and mentors
  • A 6-week incubation phase to ensure the winning ideas have the potential to become strong and successful business cases and the possibility to pitch these ideas at industry forums

During the NDC Hackathon you will be asked to use at least one of the IATA APIs pub at the event (NDC & Data) and address at least one of their related challenges. In parallel, you will be able to attend some of the workshops that will take place on-site and access to mentors that will guide you through the Hackathon experience.

We are thrilled to have a new edition of the NDC Hackathon in campus and we look forward to seeing the solutions that will contribute to taking airline retailing to the next level!

See what happened during the #NDCHack in Dublin and understand why the developer community is vital to the transformation of the airline industry.
