IAG have announced that they’re reviewing their distribution costs to ensure that the amount of the Distribution Technology Charge (DTC) reflects the current additional costs incurred for bookings that are not made using an NDC-based connection or through other low-cost channels. Following their most recent review, the DTC for bookings ticketed on or after 1 January 2020 will increase from £10.50 to £11.00 for companies making bookings via a non-NDC channel.

By using Lime’s NDC (New Distribution Capability) enabled Flights booking system it will ensure that you’re exempt from all DTC charges. Group flights do not incur this charge as fares are not delivered via NDC.

If you’re not booking via Lime’s system, please contact our Partnerships team urgently via email or call 0151 350 1171 to talk about any queries or options that would offer you a solution to avoiding these charges and ensures you get the most competitive fares with an approved leisure flights provider.
