NOTICE: Trip_SearchRQ API in version 1.0 is going to be sunset. The plan of the service decommissioning will be published via a SAN message. If you use this service and/or plan to use it in the future, please move to the most recent version of Trip_SearchRQ API instead.

Thank you.


Once a PNR has been created on the Sabre® Host the Trip_SearchRQ Web Service offers functionality to allow the Airline or Agency to search for PNRs by many different criteria. It is the equivalent of the Sabre *-name command .The request can be further detailed by the ReturnOption section which specifies content of the return message.
