With Duffel, you don't need to be an ARC/IATA travel agent. We take care of this for you. You can start selling flights in days.
With Duffel's Managed Content, you can start selling flights without becoming an IATA accredited or ARC accredited travel agent.
What is the Managed Content fee?
Duffel allows you skip the slow and painful steps of getting accredited, building relationships with airlines and getting ticketing authority (sometimes known as a "ticketing plate"). You can piggy-back on our accreditations and airline agreements instead. We call this "Managed Content".
The Managed Content package includes 5 points of sale (Australia, France, Ireland, United Kingdom and United States) and NDC exclusive prices from 20+ airlines, so that you're ready to start selling flights as soon as you sign up with Duffel.

What do I need to do to set up Managed Content?
Once you complete your account activation, this service is automatically enabled. You don't need to do anything at all.
Just head to the "Airlines" page in the dashboard to see what airlines have been activated automatically. For some, you'll need to reach out to us to turn them on.
Wait! What if I already have my own accreditations and airline agreements?
Not a problem. If you have your own accreditation, send us an email at email@example.com and we will get them set up for you.
The 0.5% Content fee won't apply where you are using your own agreements. You will only pay the booking fee seen in your pricing plan.
Can I mix and match Managed Content with my own content?
Yes. You can set up some airlines using your own ARC or IATA agency, and others using Managed Content.
For each order placed for an airline where you're using Managed Content, we will charge the Content fee.
Please note that some airlines may only be available using your own ARC or IATA agency, and some may only be available with Managed Content. For most, it's both!
