Main GalileoTerminal menu
The main GalileoTerminal menu is located at the right side of the standard header.
Main GalileoTerminal menu
If the narrower version is in place, links are gathered and available through this button
There is an interface to Travelport ViewTrip™ application directing the GalileoTerminal user to Travelport ViewTrip™ website, if the user clicks on the ViewTrip item in the main menu. The actual reservation opened in GalileoTerminal is then retrieved and displayed on the Travelport ViewTrip™ website.
If the GalileoTerminal user wants to provide passengers with an itinerary, then the Itinerary item in the main menu should be used. The itinerary can be copied into a file, printed out or sent to the passenger’s mailbox. Itinerary and ET information can be also sent to the passenger’s mobile phone via an SMS text message.
Clicking on the Itinerary item can lead to three different situations:
- If there is no actual reservation retrieved in the terminal window and there has never been any ticket issued from this GalileoTerminal account, then a search form followed by a blank page is displayed.
- If there is no actual reservation retrieved in the terminal window but there was a ticket issued from this GalileoTerminal account, the itinerary is built from the record stored during the last ticket issuance.
- If there is an actual reservation retrieved in the terminal window, the itinerary is built based on the actual data retrieved from the host online.
There is always a note explaining for which reservation and from which source the itinerary was built.
Below is a description of the controls from the top of the itinerary page:
Record locator: - every reservation available for the agency’s PCC can be retrieved and an itinerary can be built
Find - initiates itinerary retrieval based on the given record locator
Format: - the desired format of the itinerary (HTML or TEXT)
Choose your language: - the desired language of the itinerary
Hide dates in the past - controls if flown segments should be shown on the itinerary
Email: - email address where the itinerary is to be sent to and the format of the email; the passenger’s email address is retrieved from the PNR Email element (EMAIL ADDRESS EXISTS) automatically
Send - sends itinerary to the entered email address

Print charge form - this button is available when a credit card has been used to pay for the given reservation
SMS - a new site is displayed with pre-filled SMSes with itinerary and ET information
- Client number is the passenger’s phone number to which the SMS is going to be sent. The client phone number is taken automatically from the reservation when it is entered into the Phone field in this format: “P.PRGM*42011223344”. If it’s not in the reservation, the agent has to type the number manually.
- Sender name will be displayed as the sender of the SMS.
- Itinerary box shows a pre-filled itinerary while ET for passenger shows pre-filled ET information for the specified passenger. ET information is not shown, if the ticket has not been issued for the given reservation yet.
- The Send Itinerary or Send ET button generates the SMS message.
Both pre-filled messages can be modified manually. Please read the Send SMS from terminal window topic to learn how to generate an SMS directly from the terminal window.
For the back-office and accounting purposes, GalileoTerminal provides agencies with XML-structured records of all ticketed reservations. The records are created at the moment of the TKP transaction (parameterized TKP entries are also covered) and stored on GalileoTerminal servers. Tickets issued by the agency outside GalileoTerminal (via Galileo Desktop, Smartpoint, etc.) are processed during the nightly maintenance, and relevant GTIR records are created.
All records are available for the agency via a simple form under the GTIR item of the main menu.
GTIR can be retrieved for a unique reservation, by the Record Locator or by a list of reservations that can be used for selection of reservations for the download.
Auto-upload of the GTIR file
GTIR can be uploaded to the agency’s server automatically. Please see GTIR settings in the account preferences within the header controls described above.
More sophisticated and robotic methods can be used for GTIR downloads. Please contact us at email@example.com directly for details you are interested in.
The GalileoTerminal eTracker module allows GalileoTerminal users to check the status of all coupons issued through GalileoTerminal within the agency’s PCC. If GTIRs are collected also for reservations issued outside GalileoTerminal, all tickets issued by the agency can be followed in GalileoTerminal eTracker.
In the search form, the user can set up the selection parameters. Once the request is processed, the results are displayed in a clear table. The status is updated on a regular basis as well as upon request by clicking on the ticket status. The status of all displayed coupons can be refreshed by clicking on the Refresh status of all coupons. You can also retrieve details and void a ticket by clicking on the ticket number and then the Void button. You can also initiate the refund from the page with the ticket detail. ET reports can be printed out or exported either in a CSV- or XML-formatted file.
