Create Fares

In this article, you will learn how to upload fares to the AeroCRS system.

Fares is one of the 5 steps we need to have in order to get results in the AVL search, therefore it has to be accurate and updated.

You create separate fare for each route and for each class you have in your route-map.

To create a new fare:

  • Go to Marketing (module) -> Fares (sub-module)
  • Click on the 'add new' icon

Within the fare creation screen, you will need to fill out all of the relevant information about the fare:

  1. Active: Select whether you wish for the fare to be active in the system or not
  2. Destination: Select the 'From' and 'To' within the drop-down menu, this will be the route for this fare record.
