Overview
5-10 % of all airline tickets issued are refunded and Amadeus is the first GDS to fully automate
the otherwise time-consuming ticket refund process. Amadeus Ticket Changer Refund is a new
feature of the Amadeus Ticket Changer product suite which uses the data stored by airlines in
ATPCO Category 33 - Voluntary Refunds to fully automate passenger refund requests.
ATC Refund is a comprehensive solution which can handle all types of tickets and all types of
fares
ATC Refund significantly reduces the time spent by agents reading fare rules and making the
various calculations involved, such as the fare amounts to be refunded as well as the tax and any
applicable penalties. It also helps to eliminate the risk of errors which often results in Agent Debit
Memos (ADMs) for travel agencies.

ATC Refund has capitalized on the existing Auto Refund solution to simplify the work of travel
agents who benefit from a familiar working environment.
The TRF entry is used with option /ATC to process automatic validation and calculation. A refund
can be requested by the ticket number, from a PNR or from a query report.
TRF105-1234567890/ATC
TRF/L6/ATC
TRF/I527/ATC

by ticket number
ticket number element in a PNR
specific item in the query report

The TRF input will trigger the automatic calculation of the refundable amounts by Amadeus
Pricing Engine. The result is then automatically displayed in the refund mask, filling in the
following fields: Fare paid, fare used, fare refund, cancellation fee, tax refund and refund total.

A separate display of the tax breakdown can be made using the TRFT command, showing paid
taxes, used taxes, refundable taxes and non-refundable taxes.
You are able to do updates in the refund mask with TRFU/ entry, but the Data Input Status
Indicator will change accordingly.
To process the refund enter TRFP and to ignore the refund mask enter TRFIG.
