Involuntary Reissue
Reading time: 2 minute(s)

Amadeus Ticket Changer involuntary reissue allows you to perform automated re-issues for electronic tickets in involuntary rerouting/rebooking situations (e.g. flight number changes by an airline/flight cancelled by an airline….).

Airlines usually send PNRs to a queue (schedule change) in involuntary rerouting/rebooking/cancellation situations.

When a new flight is booked by an airline (and passenger accepts the change) you can process the reissue.

E.g. in strike situations an airline may give separate instructions and rules for involuntary reissues.

With FXI entry you can easily and quickly create an involuntary pricing. Amadeus Ticket Changer Involuntary pricing is manual (no guarantee) so should be used only by the airline request.
