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 the LinkedIn premises in the Silicon Valley to work on your projects and pitch ideas to a team of industry experts and mentors
  • A 6 weeks 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 NDC APIs and address at least one of the challenges around leisure or business travel. 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 throughout the Hackathon.

We are thrilled to a new edition of NDC Hackathons and looking forward to seeing the outcome of the Dublin edition!
