IATA Hackathon

Welcome to the IATA Hackathon, a round-the-clock experience which comprises:

  • One week ideation phase to prepare your project
  • A 28 hour coding experience in Madrid to work on your projects and pitch ideas to a team of industry experts and mentors

During the Hackathon you will be asked to build solutions to enhance airline’s retailing capabilities, also called AIR - Airline Industry Retailing (NDC) and Cargo One Record Data Sharing. We will ask you to address at least one of the related challenges by using at least one of the APIs available at the event. In parallel, you will be able to attend some of the workshops that will take place on-site and gain access to mentors that will support you through the Hackathon experience.

Cargo ONE Record Data Sharing

The cargo ONE Record (1R) is a cargo industry-supported program launched by IATA together with the airfreight industry for the development and market adoption of a new, web-based cargo data sharing standard. The ONE Record standard enhances the capability of data exchange between all cargo stakeholders along the transport and supply chain with an initial focus on for shippers, freight forwarders & airlines.

Feel free to use IATA's APIs and/or the APIs from ONE Record stakeholders participating to this Hackathon:

You must use the IATA ONE Record API to win the Cargo Corporate prize!

The ONE Record is an end-to-end digital logistics and transport supply chain where data is easily and transparently exchanged in a digital ecosystem of air cargo stakeholders, communities and data platforms. This will drive paperless processes and create a plug & play environment where companies can connect and re-connect their digital relations with ease

NDC Info

The New Distribution Capability (NDC) is a travel industry-supported program launched by IATA for the development and market adoption of a new, XML-based data transmission standard. The NDC Standard enhances the capability of communications between airlines and travel agents and is open for others to implement and use.

The NDC Standard enhances the capability of communications between airlines and travel agents. 

The NDC Standard enables the travel industry to transform the way air products are retailed to corporations, leisure and business travelers, by addressing the industry’s current distribution limitations:

  • Product differentiation and time-to-market
  • Access to full and rich air content
  • Transparent shopping experience 
You must use at least one NDC API participating to this Hackathon in order to win a prize.
