Booking Portal Update
The IAG Booking Portal has made two improvements to handling bookings in disruption:
- The IAG Booking Portals will now receive disruption notifications for NDC bookings that have been created outside of the Portal by registered agents. These bookings will be serviceable within the Portal.
- Disruptions will be serviceable without requiring a notification in the system, so any bookings disrupted prior to the release in January can now be serviced.
The refund functionality is now live on the IAG portal. The Portal now receives notifications for disrupted NDC bookings that were made outside of the Portal. This means agents can now able to make NDC bookings through their preferred channels and still be able to service any disruptions through the Portal.
We also no longer require a notification in the system in order for you to be able to service a disruption. If you know the reference and can retrieve the booking, you can service the disruption in the Portal.
