Retailing Capabilities Verification Guidance

Sellers have the ability to inform Airlines what type of device is being used by the customer to interact with the Seller. This allows the Airline to tailor the content they return to better suite the device type in question. e.g. lower-resolution rich media and compressed videos for an optimized smartphone experience.

In addition to device types, the Seller can also transmit to the Airline geolocation details pertaining to the customer’s device. Country, city or detailed lon/lat coordinates can be provided. This could drive other personalization in content such as:

The device types available for use are listed here: https://guides.developer.iata.org/docs/atsb-tdt

Device types can also drive an Airline’s risk assessment related to payment methods. e.g. They may wish to support a subset of payment card options, or even exempt the payer of 3D-Secure authentication, if the device used does not belong to the payer (e.g. a tablet or computer terminal owned and operated by a travel agent or other 3rd party).

Airline

Demonstrate differentiation of content specifically driven by a certain device type being used by the customer.
