Numeric Availability

Numeric Availability

Amadeus Numeric Availability allows airlines to provide travel agents with the airline’s last seat availability information. Availability status messages containing the number of seats left for a given flight/date/class are sent by the airline to Amadeus where they are used to adjust the seat count in the Amadeus Data Base each time the airline’s seat count is adjusted between a pre-defined quota and 0 within its inventory system. In so doing, travel agents know that the results displayed are reliable and can proceed to book the itinerary with complete confidence. Conversely, Amadeus Numeric Availability also avoids overbookings on exhausted airline inventory.
Key benefits
  • The prime benefit of Numeric Availability is to allow the airline to offer its "last seat availability" for each individual flight/ date/ segment/ class in all the displays generated from the Amadeus database.
  • Gives airlines the possibility to sell right down to the last seat for each flight, date, segment and fare class.
  • Avoid overbookings and the friction this causes with partners and travellers.
  • Customised and reliable availability responses for specific travel agencies.
  • Enables travel agencies to deliver better service to the airline’s end-customer.
