Amadeus – TelMe Set Up Requirements
Step 1 - How to apply
Each supplier will need to arrange for API (Application Programme Interface)
access. This requires a Client Application User (CAU) form to be completed
by the agency and returned to their Amadeus account manager. There are 2
versions at the end of this document, a UK and a North America version for
guidance, but please ask your local Amadeus representative for the correct
version for your region.
You must arrange with your Amadeus Account Manager for a NEW Office ID
and a minimum of 20 AAA’s The required number of AAAs will depend upon
likely traffic levels in the TelMe booking engine.
Office ID settings and configuration required for the TelMe booking engine will
differ from those in current use within the agency, this is why we require a
new Office ID.
Once the new Office ID has been created, the CAU form can be submitted to
Amadeus. Amadeus will then incorporate the API.
The new Office ID will be for TelMe use only and where all TelMe bookings
are made. It is possible for TelMe to place these bookings on a different Office
ID as part of the booking process. However to do this, Extended Ownership
agreements (EOS) must be in place between the 2 office Id’s. The PNR’s will
be queued with a PNR Release command to the other Office ID. This avoids
the agency having to work an additional Office Id on a full time basis.
The new Office ID will need the following activated (these are also
indicated on the CAU form)
•
•
•
•
•
•
Validating Carrier (PBC) flag - ON
DIPSUM (D65) flag
- ON
24 hour clock
Name order set to be Chronological as the default is alphabetical
CIP Airline Plates enables so ticketing entries can be added for (File
Fare Ladder and Bureau products)
EOS agreements between the TelMe Office ID and where bookings are
to be queued to
Charges
Amadeus may make a charge for this access and may have a minimum term.
All commercials are strictly between the GDS and their customers. All GDS
charges are billed directly by the GDS.
Step 2 - Processing and confirmation
On receipt of the agent’s CAU form, Amadeus will take a minimum of 3 weeks
to process the application as Nice and German offices are both involved in the
process. Allow extra time for the new Office ID to be set up before
submitting this form.
Confirmation that the API is in place will be sent via Email or a CAU
confirmation form which may including support processes etc. Each Amadeus
region has a different format.
On receipt of either of the above, these details must be passed to
[email protected]
Confirmation will include
•
•
•
•
•
Corporate ID reference i.e. TelMe-TKTWindow
Password
Office ID where the API has been activated
Amadeus Environment i.e. Production / Practice Training
Encrypted – i.e. Yes/No
Without the above information TelMe cannot set up your Office ID for use
within our systems.
Step 3 - Set Up & Receiving Bookings
TelMe will need to know
•
•
Office ID where TelMe bookings are to be sent
Queue number (and Category code if used)
Please do not use queue numbers pre-assigned Amadeus airline/system
message queue numbers as these can cause issues.
Agents will need to
•
Continually work their bookings queues to take ownership of bookings
promptly after they have been made.
As the PCC is owned by the Travel Agent, it has to their responsibility to make the
necessary arrangements directly with GDS. TelMe do not have any authority to make
requests for changes on this Office Id on behalf of agents.

Extended Ownership Security (EOS) is Amadeus System functionality that protects the
integrity and confidentiality of data belonging to and indexed under individual Office
IDs.
Depending on the functionality of your Amadeus API application, you may need to
retrieve and/or update data belonging to other Amadeus offices. You may also require
that other offices have access to your own office data: for example you may need to
update bookings of your partner agencies through Amadeus API.
EOS functionality is most commonly used for data such as PNRs, Queues, and Customer
Profiles in addition to the ability to remotely sign-in to another Office ID.
Please complete the form below if you wish to grant access to your office’s data to other
Office IDs.
However if you require access to the data of other office(s), we kindly ask you to contact
the Local Security Administrator for each of these offices. Due to legal security rules
governing customer data in the Amadeus Central System we ask that you solicit these
access rights form the owner(s) of the data.
Please open access from my (new) Office ID: __________________ to the following
Office ID(s) and/or Corporation(s) for the type of data indicated below:

Sign-in code is made of 4 digits and 2 letters, e.g. 1234AB. The 4-digit code must be unique per office, i.e. no other
sign-in code may exist for a given office with the same 4-digit code. It is advisable that the 2-letter code is also unique.
