NDC API 28-11-2019

Voluntary Servicing

Split Booking

 Effective Date:
   
 APIs Affected:

 17.2 OrderRetrieve and 17.2 OrderChange

New Feature

The OrderChange-Split Booking capability provides Travel Management Companies (TMC), Online Travel Agents (OTA) and Service Providers the ability to split the requested passengers in to a separate booking.

This enables the agents to independently service the requested passengers after a successful split process as mentioned below:

  1. Split and cancel the requested passengers from a booking.
  2. Split and change date for the requested passengers of a booking.
  3. Split and upgrade the requested passengers of a booking.

As part of this capability, we have enhanced the existing OrderRetrieve response to display the associated PNR reference (parent or child PNR) in the booking references section.

 Critical Impact:

LOW - This change will not be a breaking change to the consumers of the British Airways NDC APIs
