Jet Messaging joins Tnooz and IATA in NDC-powered hackathon

Enhancing the airline passenger experience through developer engagement

This video provides an overview of how Jet Messaging Technologies has bridged the gap between those who define a schema in XML and those who consume it in order to develop appropriate applications.

Hosted by Tnooz and co-sponsored with IATA and other travel industry technology providers, THack @ Hamburg will be held October 16-18, preceding this year's World Passenger Symposium. By fostering collaboration with the development community, the goal is to create applications and tools that reinvent the airline travel experience using the next-generation APIs of IATA's NDC platform. Jet Messaging is proud to support this event by providing ready-to-use C# libraries built using the latest XML-based NDC schemas.

Allowing airlines to sell basic seats as well as branded or itinerary-priced offers and ancillary services, NDC aims to transform the air traveler's research, shopping and on-board experience. THack @ Hamburg will bring together developers from around the world, as well as leading travel and technology companies, for a unique competition that will explore solutions to current challenges, result - empower passengers, boost business traveler productivity, and enhance the shopping experience.

Developers, UI designers, business analysts, and product managers are encouraged to compete on-location, individually or in teams of up to five members. Participation is FREE, but registration via Eventbrite is required.

Total cash prizes of US$10,000+ (Euro 9,100+) to be awarded.

Eric Lehmann, CEO of Jet Messaging, said: "Jet Messaging is excited to be an early sponsor of THack @ Hamburg. For the first time, IATA will be opening the doors of its industry changing NDC sandbox to a global community of developers with the goal to transform the airline shopping experience. JMT will provide ready-to-go libraries built from the latest IATA NDC schema set, so that C# developers can start their core development immediately, without the need to waste time building infrastructure code first. Time and agility is everything in a hackathon, and Jet Messaging Libraries will get teams developing their award winning solutions faster."

Using IATA's NDC Release Candidate, Jet Messaging has generated a complete JMT Library, representing the full schema landscape of nearly 2000 data types. Designing applications and infrastructure around a new XML-based standard requires time to understand the schema, and often involves significant trial and error during implementation, especially in the validation of message syntax. With ready-to-use C# DLLs, Jet Messaging can help the travel industry adopt this new IATA NDC standard quickly.

The full commercial product is available in the Jet Messaging online store at, and requires the purchase of a license key after a 30 day evaluation period.

Further C# libraries are available for the HTNG, OpenTravel, OTDS and ISO20022 schema definitions. Java library versions will be released later this year. Jet Messaging also generates libraries directly from your company's own custom XML schemas.
