Book International Tickets Directly On Google
Google and Vistara Airlines have joined forces, and launched a new feature wherein passengers can book international tickets on Vistara airlines, directly on the Google search.
“Book On Google” feature is being used for the same.
Expressing confidence that this feature will help passengers save valuable time, Vistara’s Chief Commercial Officer, Vinod Kannan said, “We are sure that this new ‘Book on Google’ feature will enable an even more hassle-free experience and bring greater convenience to our customers,”
How Will It Work?
This feature to book international tickets directly on Google was enabled, after Vistara implemented the New Distribution Capability (NDC), in association with Amadeus.
New Distribution Capability (NDC) is an IATA (International Air Transport Association) initiative, wherein the portal uses XML based data transmission protocol.

Vistara has now implemented this New Distribution Capability technique directly into Google search, which will allow the passengers to book tickets right at the Google search pages, without visiting any 3rd party app or site to make the payments.
Explaining the process, Vistara said, “Customers will also progressively be able to view and purchase optional upgrades, pre-purchase additional baggage allowance, seat selection, and much more on the same Google interface,”
