Tip of the Week: Endorsement Field

Remember that in IAR, the Endorsement field is not a modifiable field. Please verify that the information required by the carrier is shown in this field in the GDS, before a reservation is completed. Once the ticket comes into IAR, changes to this field cannot be made. By keeping this in mind while issuing tickets, you can help reduce the chance of incurring debit memos.

Please distribute the ARC TAC among staff and colleagues.
