RESERVATIONS - Creating reservations with the same name as the travel document



To comply with the immigration documentation requirements when entering the United States and avoid fines for erroneous information at check-in, we inform and reinforce some points to consider.


Creating reservations without errors will allow the passenger to check in without inconvenience.


Applies for the creation of reservations in any market.


Important: a new tool in Sabre will be activated during December in the Ecuador market that will make an additional documentation review (passport, visa, ESTA and / or Green Card) at the time of check-in. This tool does not change the sales channel processes and will be gradually implemented to other markets.

Implementation date:



Booking Considerations


  • When issuing a ticket, the reservation must have the name EQUAL to the entry document to the United States. This will reduce the amount of errors in Check In and avoid fines from the US authority.
