GDS for Etihad and ITA Airways codeshare tickets closed for sale from 15 February 2023:
As part of an ambitious digital transformation to enhance our booking and servicing solutions for our travel partners and guests, Etihad and ITA Airways will be upgrading our selling systems. We will be migrating from Sabre to the Amadeus Altea PSS system.
To make this change possible, codeshare tickets for EY*AZ and AZ*EY codeshare marketing flights have been closed for sale from 15 February 2023, effective immediately and for the system range. This affects these codeshare flights only.
A temporary closure of interline sales is also necessary from 15 February 2023 - 12 Mar2023
We expect to be back on sale for travel from week commencing 12 March 2023:
Pending successful migration of both airline systems we anticipate we will reopen EY AZ codeshare sales from week commencing 12 March 2023. There may be some interruption to interline selling for a similar period.
Recommendation of existing bookings affected and action required:
Etihad Airways is offering the following options for tickets issued on/before 14-Nov-2022 for travel between 15-Feb-23 and 15-Mar-2023 for tickets including AZ sector, existing interline tickets affected will have to be exchanged by travel agents.
AZ segments have been added to the Etihad PNRs — Travel agents must process ticket exchanges, with the correct waiver code in endorsement box. If agents are unable able to see new AZ segments in PNRs, they will have to add them, as either an ‘arrival information’, or sell as a fresh segment.
