For reservations, Avantik gives great flexibility to airlines and meets all required standards. The system can be tailored to your exact reservation requirements, yet remains easy to use and cost-effective.
The reservations module meets IATA standards at all levels. All messaging adheres to IATA AIRIMP and EDIFACT standards. The system uses standard segment status codes, e-ticketing, special service handling and OSI remarks. Avantik automatically applies dynamic connection and married segment logic and supports passive and open return segments. The system includes advance seat assignment (including fees if applicable).
Avantik’s very flexible Flight Availability gives many availability display options including Lowest Fare/Flexible Fare Search for specific dates or a date range and can be launched from existing reservations, customer profiles or for new reservations. Reservations include standard segment information for an unlimited number of segments including
- segment ID

New passenger type codes can be defined; including processing rules such as standard weights for weight & balance by passenger type code, gender and aircraft type (both passenger and gross passenger weight). PNRs can be searched based on PNR/GDS record locator, passenger last, first or partial name, phone number, e-mail address, e-ticket number, origin and/or destination, flight date (range), carrier code, flight number, booking date (range) or agency.
