IATA provides several sandboxes:

  • Kronos and Athena — NDC 17.2
  • Zeus — NDC 17.2/ONE Order 18.2
  • (beta) JSON Kronos — proof-of-concept transformation layer in front of Kronos
  • (alpha) GraphQL Kronos — proof-of-concept GraphQL NDC API providing a subset of Kronos functionalities: information on GitHub

How to connect and use the IATA XML Sandboxes?

First, you need an API key (unique for all sandboxes). You can get one here or manage your existing Mashery keys.

Then, simply send HTTP POST requests to:

  • Kronos: http://iata.api.mashery.com/kronos/ndc172api
  • Athena: http://iata.api.mashery.com/athena/ndc172api
  • Zeus: http://iata.api.mashery.com/zeus

Including:

  • A raw body including a valid NDC (or ONE Order, with Zeus) RQ. i.e. AirShoppingRQ
  • An HTTP header with Content-Type: application/xml
  • An HTTP header with a valid Authorization-Key: vsh6he647b35sxxxxxxxxxxxx.
