Amadeus Airline IT Amadeus Ticket Changer Suite Airlines
Amadeus Ticket Changer Suite has been developed to provide airlines with a comprehensive portfolio of automated solutions to efficiently manage ticket exchanges and refunds, whether voluntary or involuntary, across your sales channels. Prior to advances in automated ticket changing technology, airlines would use the services of highly experienced staff to perform the complex tariff calculations required to change and refund airline tickets. Not only did this expertise come at a high price, it ran the inevitable risk of human error and potential leakage of airline revenue.
A powerful tool combining accuracy and excellent customer service The Amadeus Ticket Changer (ATC) Suite combines the state-of-the-art Amadeus Fares & Pricing engine with a powerful, multi-channel ticketing functionality. ATC Suite includes a full range of products and features which offer ticket re-issue and refund solutions based on your airline’s ATPCO Category 31 and 33 rules. These include: ATC Reissue: to perform a ticket exchange, ATC Reissue will automatically calculate the price difference and any penalties in any currency based on the ATPCO Category 31 rules filed, enabling you to instantly issue a new ticket through any of your direct channels – offline and online. ATC Refund: ATC Refund uses the voluntary refund conditions coded in the ATPCO Category 33, to automatically compute the ticket refund calculation. ATC Shopper: automates online ticket exchanges using the advanced shopping capabilities of Amadeus FlexPricer combined with Amadeus Ticket Changer.
With Amadeus Ticket Changer Suite, you can: >R eissue and refund tickets quickly and accurately. >E mpower customers to manage their own ticket re-issues online. >A utomate the upgrade of passengers to a superior class using their miles. >R e-route passengers and waive penalties in the event of operational disruptions. >M inimise revenue leakage from manual pricing errors and noncollection of ticket change fees. > …all this in a matter of seconds!
ATC Upgrade: automatically computes the upgrade of a paid ticket to a superior class using air miles. The calculation includes the required number of miles based on ATPCO OC fees, and the tax difference in the payment currency. ATC Disruption: provides two different products to help airlines handle flight disruptions - ATC Invol and ATC Dynamic Waiver. ATC Invol manages the re-routing of passengers and new ticket issuance in the case of unexpected events such as flight cancellations. ATC Dynamic Waiver enables you to introduce special commercial measures in response to longer-lasting disruptions such as strikes or adverse weather conditions. Based on these measures, ATC Dynamic Waiver allows passengers to change their tickets or postpone trips without incurring penalties. With ATC Suite, you can save time, money and provide your customers with first-class service.
