The Qantas Distribution Platform now has functionality that enables you to seamlessly service customer bookings when a Qantas Commercial Policy is issued.
This latest servicing feature for the Qantas Distribution Platform allows you to amend and manage your existing customer bookings that are impacted by a Qantas Commercial Policy.
When the waiver code has been entered; you can then make changes to your customer's itinerary. These changes must be in accordance with the guidelines of the Commercial Policy. Once your customer’s itinerary has been changed, any additional fare and/or taxes that may apply will need to be paid at time of ticketing. Any applicable change fee will be waived.
When a Qantas Commercial Policy has been issued, you must continue to obtain the applicable Commercial Policy waiver code issued by Qantas on Qantas Agency Connect. You should then enter the waiver code in the re-shopping request when changing a customer's itinerary. All changes must be in accordance with the guidelines of the Commercial Policy. The Qantas Distribution Platform will reprice the new flight that is selected by your customer and automatically waive any applicable change fee. You will no longer be required to manually remove this change fee. Any additional fare and/or taxes that may apply will still need to be paid at time of ticketing.
Subscribe to our communications to be notified of new and updated Commercial Policies. Alternatively you can visit Qantas Agency Connect’s Commercial Policies Library or search for earlier policies via Agency News by selecting the Commercial Policy category and required date range.
Accessing the Commercial Policy and Waiver Management functionality is dependent on the capability of your Approved Technology Partner. Please check with your Technology Partner to find out when this functionality will be available for servicing bookings via the Qantas Distribution Platform.
