- Please note that all flights must be bookable on a "one way" basis on this agency.
- Make sure you have a "Class H1 code" with a length of 1 character mapped to the class you wish to enable on GDS, please make sure you do not duplicate this mapping.
- Make sure all your "GDS" destinations are selected with a relevant "GDS/LDS destination". this helps the system know which airport is in use.
If you do not see an airport which is served by you on the list, please request in support to be added.

Day to day operations
By default, when you have made the flight setup, the system will automatically send H1 the status of your flights (availability) by a message called "AVS" (Availability status message), this message will auto generate when you:
- Change a flight status
- Change a class
- A booking is made on the flight
- Close a class
From time to time, H1 might ask you to do an AVS recap, which means to send them the AVS messages for the entire route again, this can be done like this:
- In the flight series screen, pick all the flights.
- Pick "Send AVS recap" on the action pane
- click "Take action"
All the actions above can be done from the flight single screen for a single flight:
You can review the H1 integrity report to validate if the steps were taken correctly.
