PNR status ....its advantages for flight travelers for frequent flyers

Travelling by flights


Earlier, travelling to long distances was a hassle due to lack of appropriate means of transportation, people faced a lot of difficulties, as they could not find the convenient source of travelling. With the advancement of technology and the introduction of airplanes people could heave a sigh of relief. Travelling through airlines is preferred by most of the people as it is convenient, comfortable and travelling to any destination was reduced to a few hours.

PNR queries

PNR is a short name used to reference the Passenger Name Record, which is associated with a particular flight ticket booked by any airways. The PNR number is usually located at the top of your ticket and it can be used to check the current booking status of your flight tickets. The PNR number is associated with a ticket, not with the number of passengers. A single PNR can store the information of multiple passengers in the same ticket.
1. Enter your PNR number in the given field.
2. Click on “Get Status” button to check your PNR status.
3. Status will appear on screen
Once your ticket gets confirmed, you will see the confirmation symbol in the status.
In the airline and travel industries, a passenger name record (PNR) is a record in the database of a computer reservation system (CRS) that contains the itinerary for a passenger, or a group of passengers travelling together.

PNR related queries

Check Flight PNR Status

When you book a flight ticket from any of above airlines or any other airline, you are given a Flight PNR number in your ticket similar to Railways PNR number, which can be used to check and confirm the current status of your booked ticket. You can easily check the PNR status of your flight ticket here on this website or on the official website of the particular airlines.
In the airline and travel industries, a passenger name record (PNR) is a record in the database of a computer reservation system (CRS) that contains the itinerary for a passenger, or a group of passengers travelling together. The concept of a PNR was first introduced by airlines that needed to exchange reservation information in case passengers required flights of multiple airlines to reach their destination (“interlining”). For this purpose, IATA and ATA have defined standards for interline messaging of PNR and other data through the "ATA/IATA Reservations Interline Message Procedures - Passenger" (AIRIMP). There is no general industry standard for the layout and content of a PNR. In practice, each CRS or hosting system has its own proprietary standards, although common industry needs, including the need to map PNR data easily to AIRIMP messages, has resulted in many general similarities in data content and format between all of the major systems.
When a passenger books an itinerary, the travel agent or travel website user will create a PNR in the computer reservation system it uses. This is typically one of the large Global Distribution Systems, such as Amadeus, Sabre, or Travelport (Apollo, Galileo, and Worldspan) but if the booking is made directly with an airline the PNR can also be in the database of the airline’s CRS. This PNR is called the Master PNR for the passenger and the associated itinerary. The PNR is identified in the particular database by a record locator.

PNR information on portal

When portions of the travel are not provided by the holder of the Master PNR, then copies of the PNR information are sent to the CRSs of the airlines that will be providing transportation. These CRSs will open copies of the original PNR in their own database to manage the portion of the itinerary for which they are responsible. Many airlines have their CRS hosted by one of the GDSs, which allows sharing of the PNR.
The record locators of the copied PNRs are communicated back to the CRS that owns the Master PNR, so all records remain tied together. This allows exchanging updates of the PNR when the status of trip changes in any of the CRSs.
Although PNRs were originally introduced for air travel, airlines systems can now also be used for bookings of hotels, car rental, airport transfers, and train trips.

Vistara slogan :Fly the New Feeling"

Tata SIA Airlines Limited, operating as Vistara, is an Indian domestic airline based in Gurgaon with its hub at Delhi-Indira Gandhi International Airport. The carrier, a joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, commenced operations on 9 January 2015 with its inaugural flight between Delhi and Mumbai. Vistara was the first airline to introduce premium economy seats on domestic routes in India.

The airline was founded in 2013 as a joint venture (JV) between India's conglomerate Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines (SIA). 
The company unveiled its brand identity "Vistara" on 11 August 2014. The name was taken from the Sanskrit word Vistaar, meaning "limitless expanse". 
Vistara Logo

Vistara received its air operator's certificate from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation on 15 December 2014 and started operations on 9 January 2015. Vistara became the first carrier to operate domestic services out of the new Terminal 2 at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. On 24 August 2015, Vistara inaugurated the Aviation Security Training Institute, an in-house institute for training its cockpit and cabin crew, security staff and others related to aviation industry. The institute has secured the necessary approvals from the nodal body Bureau of Civil Aviation Security.
Vistara was the first airline in India to introduce Premium Economy class in the domestic market.
Vistara Flight

Vistara do not have in-flight entertainment screens installed but it provides pre-loaded tablets for its business-class fliers. In March 2016, Vistara started beaming content directly to passengers' personal electronic devices through one-way Wi-Fi connection through BAE Systems IntelliCabin in-flight entertainment system.

The in-flight food is catered by TajSATS Air Catering, another joint venture between Tata and a Singaporean company. Vistara offers four different meals for each cabin for different time of the day — breakfast, refreshment, lunch and dinner with options of one vegetarian and one non-vegetarian dish in economy class; two vegetarian dishes and one non-vegetarian dish in premium economy; and two vegetarian and two non-vegetarian dishes for business-class cabin. The menu is typically changed every seventh day and there are different menus for lunch and dinner. It also provides special meals upon request 24 hours before departure.

On 29 March 2016, Vistara inaugurated premium lounge service for its Business-class passengers and Club Vistara Gold card holders at the departure level of Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport at Delhi.
Vistara uses Club Vistara as its frequent-flyer program it operates as a value based program and awards points on the basis of money spent on tickets rather than miles traveled by passengers. On 29 January 2015, Vistara announced a partnership agreement with Singapore Airlines (SIA) which would allow Club Vistara members to earn and redeem miles with the KrisFlyer program on SIA and Silk Air flights and vice versa.
