Bachelor’s Thesis Title:

The relevance of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) for Travel Suppliers in the context of IATA’s current Retailing Programs, such as New Distribution Capability (NDC) and ONE Order.”

1. General research question towards GDS:

“Do GDS providers study DLT capabilities?”

2. General research question towards Intermediaries:

“Do Intermediaries, such as Metasearch Engines and Online Travel Agencies (OTA), see how DLT could make toxic, traditional commission-based, price-parity business models obsolete?”

3. General research question towards Suppliers:

“Will IATA, a leader for suppliers in tourism, consider to enrich its NDC-program with DLT?”
