Instructions for involuntary reissue


Unless there are specific instructions on Easy Hotspot or the fare used is an AJB fare, travel agencies need an authorization from Finnair to do involuntary changes to the ticket. Please contact Agent Help.

Processing Involuntary Reissue

  • The fare from the exchangeable ticket copied to the reissue TST must be in reissue mode.
  • The taxes from the exchangeable ticket copied to the reissue TST must be in old mode
  • The fare calculation from the exchangeable ticket copied to the reissue TST must have 'I-' indicator in front.
  • The endorsement from the exchangeable ticket copied to the reissue TST must have the following additional text at the end: 'INVOL REROUTE'.
  • For unused tickets, do involuntary reissue for the whole ticket, even though there are changes only on outbound or homebound.
  • No additional collection, ‘Total’ and/or ‘Grand Total’ is 0.

Please see an example below of what elements need to be taken into consideration when building an involuntary reissue TST. Please refer to HE TST -> GP REI for entries in Amadeus or consult your local GDS Help Desk.

Amadeus Ticket Changer (ATC) Involuntary

You may also choose to use Amadeus Ticket Changer (ATC) Involuntary tool to automatically process the TST. With the Amadeus entry FXI/TKT105-1234567890F3-4/S4-6/P1 for the example below the involuntary TST would be automatically updated. Only stopover and connection indicators need to be manually updated.

Amadeus has at this point opened the functionality in the following countries: Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia, Finland, Greece, Germany, Switzerland and Russia.

For access to the functionality, you need to contact your local Amadeus Help Desk. More information is available in Amadeus on HE FXI.

Example of involuntary reissue

In this example the outbound is flown and there are changes on the homebound flights.

Involuntary TST preparation for the homebound

Please be alert that you are reissuing/exchanging the correct coupons
from the ticket. Even though SJDDFW has not changed, you need to include
the flight, since it is within the same fare component of the whole
homebound travel.

Ticketing and informing the customer

For this example the correct entry for ticketing would be TTP/T2. Please always double-check both the original ticket and the reissued ticket that you can see that the correct coupons are in E(Exchange) status and O(Open) status, or alternatively A(Airport control) status.

Send a copy of the reissued electronic ticket to the customer. It is also good to check if there are any possible special services (SSR) booked to the original flights that need to be rebooked to the new flights.

At the time the customer has agreed and approved the new flights/schedule, it is recommended to insert information of this in the PNR. For example SR OTHS PAX ACCEPTED SCHED CHG FOR AY006 or similar that suits the occasion.
