Airline Credit Shell

introducing a new payment option

As we all know that due to the unavoidable Covid-19 situation, the airline has kept the booking amount against the flights that are affected, in the form of Credit Shell in the customer's PNRs. Now in order to facilitate the utilization of the said amount, Akbar Travels have introduced a new payment option called “Airline Credit Shell”, on the B2B portal.

Step 1: Select the payment option as “Airline Credit Shell” and enter the affected PNR in “Enter Shell PNR” box, click on “I accept Terms and Conditions” and then click on “Submit for Shell credit Booking”.

Imp Note: 

  • Passenger name should be same as compared to Credit Shell PNR.
  • Same Fare type should be used to process the booking.
Step 2: The system will hold that itinerary and submit that itinerary for offline issuance. The system will generate a new HOLD PNR on airlines site and the status of the itinerary will reflect as “PNR Hold”.

Step 3: The Operations team will verify the HOLD booking and credit shell amount and accordingly connect with the agent to finalize the booking.    

Below are the possibilities of booking:
