City Codes and Their Use
The airline industry uses a system that identifies each airport and city with a unique three-letter code. These codes are administered by the international Air Transport Association (IATA), and the international Standard Organization (ISO). Each airline is identified by a unique two-letter code. These codes allow you to quickly and efficiently identify cities, airports, and airlines. Below are examples of these displays. The displays are explained in detail later in this chapter.

Introduction

Travel is so basic to human activity that we don’t always give thought to its scale. How does the travel industry succeed in moving so many people so fast and so well to so many destinations around the globe?

Each journey is planed and organized, with information sent and received by many people including travel agents, airline and airport staff, hoteliers, rail staff and car rental employees.

The data behind all this information is stored and communicated: flashed across millions of screens: transmitted electronically, verbally or printed out in agencies, airports and sales outlets. The information is constantly changing, valid today, out of date tomorrow, as soon as the travelers leave the airport to check out of the hotel.

Amadeus is the world’s largest travel distribution system, a precise and powerful instrument, helping professionals steer the travel industry of today. A pool of highly skilled engineers and specialists, Amadeus is also a group of companies with roots in countries around the world, where teams of professionals work closely with agencies and travel service providers. The profession of Amadeus is global travel distribution. Without it, the travel industry would not exist as it does today.

Airline Access Indicators
The following table describes the indicators that can appear in the availability display: Indicator / (Slash) Access Type Amadeus Full Access Explanation Amadeus Access can be divided into two main options, Amadeus Access Update and Amadeus Access Sell. These two options are offered to airlines either combined or separately. When an airline chooses both options, the indicator is a slash (/). Both options provided the highest degree of connectivity with actual seat availability and immediate confirmation. Amadeus Access Sell offers a fully secured sale for each seat. When a request to book a seat is made, Amadeus checks the flight in the airline’s own inventory system. According to the status, the sale is confirmed, waitlisted, or rejected immediately. Direct Access provides a realtime link to the airline system to display an accurate availability, at the time the request is made. This link is created through the use of direct access entries. Amadeus Access Update allows an airline to keep its availability displays in Amadeus fully synchronized with those in its own system. Schedule changes and confirmations are immediate, and last seat availability is offered.

Access Type Standard Access

Explanation Standard access offers flight availability and schedules that are update once a week by tape. Availability levels are updated by standard AIRIMP messages. When you book a seat on a standard access airline, a teletype message is generated to that airline at end transaction.

Record Return
Amadeus offers record return which enables you to verify that a reservation has been recorded in the airline’s inventory system. After end transaction you make the RL entry, and the systems display the individual record locators of the airlines that participate in record return. The airline can be connected through Amadeus Access Sell, direct access, or standard access.

Non-Homogeneous Condition

A non-homogeneous condition occurs in a PNR when: • • The number of seats in an air segment is not equal to the number of passenger names The number of seats booked within the air segments is not equal

When a non-homogeneous condition occurs during PNR creation, the system automatically splits the PNR into separate homogeneous PNRs at end transaction, and displays an Associated Cross Reference Record (AXR).

AXR Record
The AXR record is a name list and a cross reference of the PNRs that were automatically split by the system. Here is an example of an AXR at end transaction:

The response after end transaction:
--- AXR --RP/BKKTG215A/BKKTG215A TS/SU 8SEP08/0641Z 2CWYHU 1.GREEN/JANET MRS 2 TG 910 Y 01JUN 1 BKKLHR HK1 0030 0620 01JUN E TG/ 3 TG 917 Y 05JUN 5 LHRBKK HK1 2135 1555 06JUN E TG/ 4 AP BKK +66 2 207-9000 - AMADEUS TRAINING CENTRE - A 5 TK TL08SEP/BKKTG215A * SP 08SEP/TSSU/BKKTG215A-2CWYRI

Split PNR
A PNR is split in the following ways: • • Automatically by the system as a result of a nonhomogeneous condition during PNR creation. Manually by an agent to a retrieved PNR.

You can use the split transaction as the first entry after PNR retrieval. Here are the PNR split entries: Entry SP3 SP1, 3, 5–8 Splits One name from a retrieved PNR Individual and a range of names from a retrieved PNR

The system automatically: • • Transfers all PNR elements that are passenger associated to the passengers being split. Duplicates all elements that are not passenger associated or contain status or advice codes.

To ensure that message routing for incoming teletype messages is unique to the record, a different communication reference is created at end transaction on the split PNR. Since a communication reference is associated to outgoing message for return reply, the new communication reference must be created before any changes. When the system cannot match the message to the PNR is rejects the message.

After you make the split transaction, the system response is a new PNR for the name element numbers I the entry. The system tags this PNR as the ASSOCIATE PNR-(AXR). There are two entries required to file the associate PNR.

Queues

Amadeus Queues give airline, travel agencies, and providers the ability to send and receive PNRs that require action, and to send and receive messages.

Using queues you can communicate with other offices and organize the workload in your own office by accessing and creating queues for the different tasks you have to perform.

PNRs can require action for the following reasons: • • • • Confirmation of segments, service, options or seats from the waitlist Change of flight schedule Expiration of ticketing time limit Changes in a group PNR

The categories of dual queues are divided into four date ranges.
