What are remarks

Remarks include details that serve for the internal purposes (e.g. accounting, invoicing) of the agency. They work similarly as on GDS and can be exported to mid/back office via AIR or MIR files.

We support two scenarios of remarks:

Booking remarks
If you want to use remarks during the booking process, you need to firstly confirm to AirGateway which remarks template you want to have available. The template can be fully customized depending on the details you need. The screenshot below shows optional remarks during the booking.

We can also set remarks as mandatory in order creation, so the agents can not skip them during the booking process. The template will appear automatically and will have to be filled in order to continue with the booking.

Post Booking remarks
Once you create an order (unpaid), you can find the remarks section in your order details and add remarks after the booking.
