British Airways and Iberia have confirmed today that it has reached a distribution agreement with leading UK independent travel company, The Lotus Group, which operates brands including DialAFlight and Supertravel.

The Lotus Group agreement will see British Airways and Iberia fares and content distributed via New Distribution Capability (NDC) based connections and result in The Lotus Group avoiding the Distribution Technology Charge of £8 per fare component for all UK bookings of British Airways and Iberia marketed flights from November 1, 2017.

Ian Luck, British Airways’ head of distribution, said: "The Lotus Group has been an excellent partner for many years and has a history and culture of enthusiastically embracing new thinking and business models. 

“We are very pleased with this agreement which provides immediate and longer term opportunities for both parties and our many mutual customers.”

Lotus Group Commercial Director, Tony Griffiths said: "We have always been at the forefront of technological change and we can see a number of commercial opportunities in this new approach."

This follows the announcement yesterday that British Airways and Hogg Robinson Group have also reached an NDC related agreement.
