Ticketing Authority

(0 reviews)

ARC’s Ticketing Authority API informs the user whether or not a travel agency has the authority to issue tickets on their airline. After submitting an ARC Number as a query, the user will receive both the airline’s and ARC’s ticketing authority for the agency.

For each of the ticketing authorities (airlines and ARC), the response will provide one of the following values depending on the agency's Accreditation Type, Accreditation Status with ARC, and CTAC status.

  1. Ticketing On: This response will be provided if the agency has ticketing abilities and the agency’s ticketing status is not revoked in CTAC. Accreditation Type = Agency or Corporate Travel Department (CTD) and Accreditation Status = Active
  2. Ticketing Off: This response will be provided in either of the following scenarios:

    • The agency has ticketing abilities and the agency’s ticketing status is revoked in CTAC. Accreditation Type = Agency or CTD and Accreditation Status = Active
      • If the agency is in Default, the response for ARC's Ticketing Authority will be Ticketing Off.
    • The agency could have ticketing abilities but is currently unable to issue tickets due to it's change in Accreditation Status. Accreditation Type = Agency or CTD and Accreditation Status = Termination, Voluntary Cancelation, or Withdrawn
  3. Ticketing Not Allowed: This response will be provided if the agency could have ticketing abilities but the Accreditation status prevents ticketing. Accreditation Type = Agency or CTD and Accreditation Status = Approved, Disapproved, Dormant, New Record, or Pending Investigation

  4. Non Ticketing: This response will be provided if the agency would never have ticketing abilities. Accreditation Type = Verified Travel Consultant (VTC)

To assist you with set up and testing the API functionality, a mocking service is available to you. To access data in either the sandbox or production environments, authentication is required. Request access online or contact your designated ARC sales representative for more information.
