Establishing and Managing Airlines

As a vital part of the travel industry Limousine operators frequently provide services for their customers to and from Airports. Therefore Limo Anywhere provides a method to easily integrate Airports and Airlines into your back-office system.

 
Limo Anywhere comes with most of the world's commercial Airlines established in the system. In a new system the pre-populated Airlines will all be in BLACK font indicating their status is "ACTIVE". All airlines are active by default, as it would be impossible to keep up with 100% of Airline closures and openings.
 
Adding an Airline

If you have an Airline you service that is new or simply not included, Limo Anywhere makes it easy to add said Airline to your system.
Click on the My Office icon on the toolbar.
Open the Company Resources tab and select the Airlines button as illustrated below.
Enter the required entries of Code and Name. Note: The Code is the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and is always two letters. The FAA code is used by flight tracking software and is pre-populated into Limo Anywhere. Airline codes can be found on line at http://www.airlinecodes.co.uk/airlcodesearch.asp.

WARNING:
Using an incorrect FAA code will present problems if the company has the Fight Tracking Module or Real Time Flight Tracking Powered by Flight Stats, or wants to manually track flights.

Enter the optional information of TKT Code, and Phone as required. Note: TKT Codes (sometimes called a prefix or ticket prefix) for commercial airlines are assigned by IATA (International Association of Travel Agents) and are always three numbers. A source to look up airline codes is http://www.airlinecodes.co.uk/airlcodesearch.asp.  
Select the appropriate Status of ACTIVE/INACTIVE from the drop down list.
Click "ADD AIRLINE" to retain any edits.

Deleting an Airline
 
Warning: Deleting an Airline can have far reaching effects in the database if that Airline is utilized in any reservations past or future. For that reason it is strongly recommended that Airlines not be deleted. Instead it is best to utilize the Status, and change the Status of an Airline that is not being used to INACTIVE.
